I'm trying the butter and milk substitiution (+ chocolate) bit in the cake I'm baking for my wife's birthday. For the chocolate I'm using about 7 Hershey's minatures bars (likewise, just have them lying around...). If the batter taste is any indicataion, the cake should be really good after it's baked.
Going to use a standard tub frosting though, don't have the time (or the hardware really) for making my own frosting.
First impressions from putting it together, the batter turned out really thick. It may have been because I stopped to pull the chocolate out of the microwave from melting it. because it thickened up really quickly after I added it... perhaps it was the temperature or something. Anyway, the thick batter was easy to put into the pans. I mentioned the taste of the batter already... mmm.
