      Superb!! This is an excellent traditional chocolate layer, moist and deeply chocolate. The cake flour makes the crumb tender, but I didn't find the cake fragile. It cut beautifully with a serrated knife. Watch the baking time. My layers tested done at 26 minutes. I made a white chocolate ganache for between the layers and covered it with a tart raspberry filling. Frosted the sides with a chocolate buttercream icing (not the one shown with the recipe), and covered the top with a dark chocolate ganache and a thick layer of white chocolate curls.
