    This is a deceptive little cake. The first slice (or two is (are certainly edible but not amazing. Then the cake sits for two or three days and with that next slice you go wow! The last couple of slices are fudgy, both in taste and texture, with very slight but definite warm spice undertones. So good with a cup of joe after dinner or as a midafternoon snack. I made it twice, once with the lower spice amounts as listed on the Web site and once with the higher amounts the host used on tv, and I will definitely make this cake a third time with the host's higher amounts b/c that's the version I liked best.

    I have made this cake twice and I think its a favorite chocolate cake. I made it for family and I don't think they appreciated it.The fact that it's so moist is what I like, also the spices are terrific. I like to try new spice combinations. Good program.
