My son wanted chocolate cake for his fifth birthday and this is the one I chose to make. It was easy to make into cupcakes and tasted great. Thank you!
Just tried this recipe with not much hope as past ones have been pale in colour and taste, but this one OMG Fantastic just perfect in colour and taste, I used green and blacks cocoa powder as that was the closest I could find, a big thank you for sharing this recipe I love it ?
My first "not from a box" cake! I made it for my husband's birthday with peanut butter icing. It was fabulous! I am ready for cupcake wars! Ok, perhaps not yet but this recipe will stay with me forever. It turned out beautifully and tasted even better.
Hi this looks so amazing...but I wanted to know..as you have varied between 2/3 and 1 cup for the hot water can you give me a little more help...as in what consistency should I be looking for before adding less or more water. Thanks can't wait to try it!
This is an excellent quick and easy chocolate cake. I toned down the sugar slightly to balance out the creamy sweet cream cheese frosting. The cake came out perfect the first time. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Now village and city folk from Yunnan, China are enjoying your cake as well.
My first review mentioned I used the frosting recipe too, lol. There is no frosting recipe here. Now I don't remember where I got the frosting recipe from! Either way, this cake was AMAZING!!!!!!!!
I used whole wheat organic flower and the cake had an awful taste and the dough stuck to the pan. It also didn't rise much. I couldn't get the end product out of the pan, it just crumbled and broke apart. Maybe it was the flour I used. I will use plain white unbleached flour next time to see if I get different results.
Was simply delicious.......best chocolate cake ever......loved it...
Maybe I'm missing something, but this cake was meh at best. It completely sunk in the middle; the flavor was nothing exciting, and the texture was just ok. I made sure to use high quality dutch cocoa and felt like it was a waste of ingredients. <br/>A box mix of brownies would have been the same for me.
Wonderful! Used the 3/4 boiling water as recommended and it was perfect. Hubby wanted chocolate cake for his birthday and I'm anti box mixes. Slathered this in Kittencal's dark chocolate butter cream frosting off this site. Rich dark chocolate perfection. Thanks for sharing. My husband thanks you as well!
