    I have been making this recipe for about 10 years and can't recommend it highly is so easy and turns out very moist and chocolaty. I have been asked for this recipe many times!

    Thank you so much for posting the photograph with the Black Magic Cake recipe, it looks great! I have not tried using the Godiva cocoa but will try and find some. Small town living has its limitations for ingredients. I started making this cake with Hershey’s, then found a cocoa made by Ghirardelli, and since Hershey’s Special Dark showed up on the grocery shelves I have been using it. Thanks again!

    This is a lot like the recipe the Barefoot Contessa uses - she insists on Godiva Cocoa, upon which I agree. I've uploaded a picture of a "Black Magic" cake for your recipe, if you don't mind. Feel free to change it next time you make the cake, please.
