I really liked this cake. The yellow cake was soft and fine, and I really loved the frosting. All together it was so good!
I made a half batch in 6 in pans, and I did make a couple substitutions. I ran out of sugar and it wasn't going to work to run to the store, so I used 1/4 c white sugar and 1/2 c powdered sugar. For the TB alcohol in the syrup and the frosting, I used 1/8 tsp almond extract for each instead.
In putting it together, I didn't read well, and I only put half the chocolate between the layers. So I ended putting it on the sides, too, which still tasted pretty good. This is my favorite Dorie cake so far. Thanks to Megan of My Baking Adventures for picking the recipe!
