A simple cake that looks fancy (thanks to a decadent chocolate glaze) is perfect for the novice baker. If you have extra glaze, pour it into a jar and place it in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. Use it as a spread on warm toast or as a dip for fresh strawberries. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    I wish I had read the reviews before making this cake for my daughter's birthday. Was very dry and the chocolate sauce was grainy. Will not make it again.

    I agree that the cake was not very chocolately, and not moist. I only cooked at 325 the 55 min. My problem was the glaze, I cup of unsweetened chocolate squares, that a lot and it take more than 1/2 cup of sugar to sweeten. I ended up using 1 cup. Will not make again, the recipe went in the recycle pile.

    I tasted the batter before I put it in the pan. It did not taste chocolatey, so I doubled the semisweet chocs. and it still does not taste like a chocolate cake. VERY DISAPPOINTED.... Waste of time and money.... The icing I had the same trouble being grainy. Through it down the drain. NO GOOD. I have better cake recipes. Nmiyares

    My glaze was slightly grainy. Could it be because I didn't bring butter to room temp.?
