I just tried this cake because, well, chocolate!, having copied it from another thread ages ago (it's one of those days where you need chocolate - I managed to lose my father's wedding ring, which I wear as a thumb ring, while I was in town today, and careful retracing of my steps didn't found it).
What a waste of time and ingredients. It's just a blah, boring cake, with a little bit of a chocolate flavour, but not nearly enough for me. I was wanting rich and moist - I got dry and boring.
I should've stuck with my old faithful, CL's Buttermilk-Chocolate Cake, which is rich and moist.
Oh well. The only positive I can say about this recipe is that the cake did turn out pretty big - so if big is what you're looking for, go for it!
