    I’m about to try this recipe for the first time. Looks amazing. I was wondering which would be best: sweetened or unsweetened chocolate? Some comments suggest sweetened chocolate, while the recipe calls for unsweetened.

    Every. Time.
    Simply Recipes never lets me down!! Made this cake for a dinner party. I used the full cup of bourbon, and it was just the right amount. I did not sprinkle bourbon on top, just powdered sugar. Served it it with homemade whipped cream. The crowd loved it so much!!

    I’ve made this recipe many times with great success. The only variation employed is occasionally adding a white chocolate ganache.

    I’m giving this two stars because my husband liked it, but the rest of the family didn’t care for it at all. Obviously one would have to really like bourbon to appreciate this recipe, and while I drink bourbon occasionally, we all felt that it was overpowering. Will not make again.

    Followed this almost to the letter. 3/4 cup of Jack Daniels. Semi sweet dark chocolate chunks melted down and sprinkled crushed pecans on the top of the batter (after spooning it in the pan). Staggered blending of the JD cocoa mixture and flour was gold. Nailed it. Was going to bring some to work to share but having second thoughts.
