This cake is delicious. I did not make the frosting, as I had read in the comments it was a bit sour and I also wanted vanilla icing. I decided to make cupcakes. One thing to note, do not fill the cupcake tins too fill. It will overflow, these puff up quite a bit. The cake is very fluffy. The taste of the cake in the end isn't like cocoa powder which is what I dislike about most homemade chocolate cakes. It's a very light chocolate flavor.
