This cake was easy to make and very chocolatey, but not too chocolatey. Next time, I will add some semi-sweet chocolate chips. Served best a la mode.

This cake is delicious! I made a few changes due to not having the exact items on hand. I used 2% milk. Only had 1/4 cup of Hershey's regular cocoa left in the container so I added 1/4 cup of Hershey's Dutch Processed cocoa. I did not use any coffee. The cake is moist and dense and not overly sweet. Of course I got carried away and made a buttercream icing which made the cake even better.

Eureka I've found it!

I've been on a quest for a light chocolate cake for a while and I've finally found it in this cake. It took me less than 15 minutes to put it together with ingredients that I already had on hand which was great. My family liked that it wasn't too sweet. To keep it light I served it with a dollop of nonfat cool whip and some sliced strawberries and bananas since I had those on hand. Thank you for a great recipe. I will definitely be making this again.

This is a great recipe! I love that it is not super sweet. Martha Stewart has a similar recipe for her chocolate bundt. If people like them real sweet then I would suggest a ganache or glaze or some kind of frosting. I added 1 tsp. of decaf dark coffee crystals. You can't really taste the coffee but it does give it a deeper chocolate flavor. If you want it richer, use some baker's chocolate or melt down a chocolate bar to mix in the batter along with the cocoa.

Easy recipe with a good result. This does not produce super chocolately flavor, but they are also not over sweet. I might add some mini-chocolate chips in the future which I know would up the calories, but just add a little more chocolate flavor. I used mini-bundt pans and baked for 25 minutes. The cakes were moist and good, just not as much strong chocolate as is my personal taste.

I really enjoyed this recipe. The coffee increased the chocolate flavor without overpowering with a "coffee" taste. Will make this again, but maybe with a chocolate drizzle.
