This cake looks very impressive when it's done however I don't agree that it is SO moist. I made this for a birthday and to add to the decadence I doubled the recipe and made a 2 layer cake with some chocolate ganache in the middle. I also substituted a very dark bold coffee for the cayenne and everyone loved the flavor. However I want to try adding some sour cream to make it just a bit more moist. Otherwise it is very tasty!

I loved this cake as did those who shared it with me. I had never tasted spicy chocolate cake before and what a pleasant surprise. This is a keeper! When a reviewer is surprised that a recipe doesn't come out exactly as they think it should, it is because they have usually altered the recipe in some way(s). Baking is precise and recipes must be followed exactly. Don't write a review unless you've made the recipe exactly as written, it is not fair and not accurate.
