Notes about this recipe

    This was really bad, and most of it ended up in the garbage. The cake was dry and crumbly, with a spongy crumb and a faintly metallic taste, in spite of an enormous amount of butter. The frosting was harsh tasting and too dark, in spite of my using a high-quality chocolate.
