I have tasted plenty of cake in my day and for me to really enjoy a cake it has to be rich but very moist where it will just melt in my mouth and this chocolate cake it exactly that. I use it for a variety of treats from the basic cake to a layered torte to even cake pops! Whenever a recipe of mine calls for chocolate cake this is the only chocolate cake recipe I use!
