    This cake is the best. Made it a lot and it never lets me down. My family has tried it and they said it was some of the best chocolate cake they have ever had. I definitely recommend

    Very good. Very very sweet, moist and delicious. I didn’t have any applesauce so I substituted with a banana, which gave the super chocolate flavor a hint of banana flavor.
