Chocolate-Chocolate Cake is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have baked this cake three times in two weeks for different events! Every single time, the cakes have turned out beautifully. I can't get over how great this recipe is. This has been a fail- proof recipe for me. I can change the chocolate quality, the sugar type (standard white, raw, coconut sugar, or brown sugar), and flour (gluten free, regular, or wheat) but the recipe maintains it's integrity as long as I keep the ratios. Invariably, the cake turns out rich, moist, and perfectly aerated with a clean taste. I have made one change to fortify the richness of the chocolate: I substitute water with weak coffee. Thank you for this great recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had made this cake for my husband and son's birthday on Feb 26th. I had originally, planned to make the "Chocolate cake with Chocolate buttercream icing", which was delicious. I decided to try and make this one instead. This cake turned out great. This cake was VERY moist (even a day later). I didn't add the melted chocolate chips on top, but the Chocolate Buttercream Icing instead with chocolate chips around the top and sides of cake. My family loved this cake, a "chocolate heaven", they called it. The only thing I would do differently, is add more chocolate chips in the batter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made with carob chips Very easy cake to throw together. I made it after a family member requested a cake with boiled icing. Only chocolate cake can go with boiled icing in my opinion, the only problem is my family member is allergic to chocolate, so I substituted carob chips. I read the reviews that you need to add the 2 full cups of chocolate chips for flavour, so Ii did the same with the carob. Carob is sweeter then chocolate, so I did omit 1/4 cup of sugar. The cake came out great and I didn't let the secret out until after it was gone. No one could tell the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake as directed and it was a hit but it wasn't enough chocolate for me so I added another cup of melted chocolate chips to the batter and baked it and OMG it was awsome and everyone that has tried it loves it and wants me to make it for all family gatherings....I also use chocolate mouse between the layers and then chocolate frosting on top and sides....If you do not like chocolate this cake is not for you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I added an extra cup of chocolate chips to the batter and an extra 1/4 cup of butter and it was too dense. Did anyone else have this problem? I might have done something else wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste and Texture I made this cake for my son's birthday and it turned out great. It stayed moist for over a week and the chocolate taste was spot on. I added the 2 cups of chocolate chips to the batter (instead of dividing) after reading some reviews and it turned out perfectly. Everything else in the recipe stayed the same. The cake was 2-layers and I decorated it with fondant. It was sturdy enough to hold everything without being too dense. This will be my only chocolate cake recipe from now on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i made this cake yesterday just as a treat for my kids. The instructions were easy to understand and the actual mixing didn't take long either. I read the reviews before making it so i knew i had to add an extra half stick of butter. Also instead of 1 1/2 cups of water i used one cup of milk and 1/2 cup of milk. It took an hour to bake tho instead of the 45 mins stated and my cake cracked on the top. I really don't know why but it was ok. The cake was moist and light and soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and yummy! I have been baking forever and this is by far one of the easiest, most delicious cakes I have made! First time I tried exactly like the recipe said. Perfectly moist and delicious. Great basic choc cake recipe. Second time I used coffee instead of water and it came out with more chocolate flavor! Third time I used wheat flour and it was still awesome! Since then I have used all choc chips in with butter and Choc chips in the batter...options are endless! Chocolate lovers dream!!
