Just made this yummy cake tonight! I took another reviewer's suggestion and cut both sugars slightly. I also substituted Raw Sugar for some of the white sugar, added maybe a tablespoon or two more coco, and threw in about 3/4 cup frozen raspberries. The raspberries added a really nice touch; I would love to try it with cherries, as well. Another addition: when the cake came out, I sprinkled a tablespoon or so of Grand Mariner on top. Mmmmm, moist, chocolaty goodness! Definitely a keeper! And so easy!
