You cannot go wrong with this recipe. Excellent.
I cooked this cake for a vegan friend and he loved it! So did the non-vegans. Very quick, easy recipe and a delicious, moist cake - this one is definitely on my 'must-make-again' list! Thanks for sharing, Sharlene
Let me confess up front that I am not a fan of chocolate cake. Most Chocolate Cakes I have eaten have tasted kind of dry and slightly off--not this one!!! Moist! Chocolatey! Rich! PERFECT! I found this exact recipe on someone's food blog several months back. I just got around to making it, as I am not a big fan of choclate cake. It took maybe 15 minutes to put together. I used Canola oil instead of corn oil and Valrhona cocoa. I think the key to the flavor in this cake is the quality of the cocoa. In other words, use the very best you can afford! It is worth the results! I can't recommend this cake enough! Truly an amazing, EASY, chocolate cake--even looks like the picture from the cake box!
This is a very moist cake and there's no hint of the vinegar used in it. It's very handy as a cupboard recipe when you don't have anything else left in your home and want chocolate cake. I think the cake did have a slightly different taste to a "normal" chocolate cake but that might have been due to the fact I used vegetable oil instead of corn oil. I suggest greasing the cake pan and lining the bottom of it with parchment paper or similar as I remember having trouble getting the cake to come out of the pan because it was so moist.
