I wanted more chocolate in my cake and added 1/2 cup of cocoa to the recipe. 3 cake pans are necessary. Batter seems thin after adding the cup of hot water but it turns out great! Everyone loved the cake; I will be making it again. I frosted it with buttermilk-cream cheese frosting and used chocolate cream filling between the layers.
