This is a sublime blend of spices and chocolate. It is so moist that it needs no topping, and it's still wonderful the next day.

The cocoa cake was great! I made it for Mother's Day and mom loved it!Very chocolate-y, and not too sweet.

This wasn't as chocolatey as I had hoped - maybe it needs more cocoa? Also, some members of my family weren't keen on the flavors added by the allspice. If I were to make it again, I'd instead use 2 tsp of cinnamon (and increase the cocoa).
