    Everyone loves this cake even to those who don’t eat chocolate, this is a good try for them. I have many friends who asked me to bake this for them and it never fail to please them every single time. I’m glad that this was my first recipe and trial of a Devil cake. Though I have tried other recipe but it always takes me back to this one.

    I made this for my husband's birthday. Yes, it was a fair amount of work but it is YUMMY! I used my regular chocolate buttercream recipe for the icing. Will definitely make again!

    Won't be making this again, a lot of work and was disappointed . With the frosting after letting it sit for 20 min. was very hard to spread. My husband who loves chocolate and sweet said it was way too rich. Friends said the same

    The cake turned out nice. It doesn't taste better or worse than cake from a box. It was time consuming to make because you have to melt the chocolater, butter, sugar. I used the 8inch pans and had plenty of batter but not enough for 3 pans like the other lady. Yes, Jandan the powdered sugar for the frosting is 1/2cup. I sifted it. The frosting was tasty and better than store bought. I will put this one in the recipe book. MARTHA FOR PRESIDENT!!
