Years ago I made the original recipe that was on the Hershey's can. And it was very good. I didn't make it GF. So the photo isn't of GF cake.Sorry.
I've used this recipe for peanut butter cup cupcakes and oreo poke cake and it's amazing! Don't be afraid that's its liquidy because the cake turns out light and really rises. Haven't had a chance to try the frosting yet, but the cake is sooooo worth it! I do add more vanilla than it calls for, though, since it is really chocolate-y.
I used this recipe for a Birthday cake I made! Supurb! very fudgy and moist! they said it was the best cake they ever ate! I did use all purpose flour and used 1 cup of brown sugar wow sooooo good!
I am new to the gf way of life. I had to unlearn everything about baking. And I was a lifelong, excellent baker. All that said, this is a great cake! Whether your gf or not!! Do use the frosting recipe it is delicious and very easy to spread.
I just wrote a review but was not signed on and I'm not sure it will show up. So, a quick summary - this cake is the best - I've made it over one hundred times - and it can't be beat. In response to the question about the cakes sticking to the pans - use a baking spray. Pam makes one and there are store brands, as well. Cooks Illustrated recommended them - and they work perfectly. No more flouring or parchment paper. By the way, be sure to make this cake with the Perfectly Chocolate Frosting - outstanding!
let me just say this cake tasted GREAT, BUT did anyone else have trouble with sticking? i only had nonstick pans and i did coat with brown rice flour, but it took forever to cook. the edges were crunchy and it was hard to cut it and keep a shape! i have not had trouble with any other GF baking, but then i am not attempting cakes very often :)
I made this for my wife's birthday, and no one could tell it was gf. My wife loved it. Thank you for posting it.
This is a wonderful cake... especially for chocolate-lovers! I followed the directions exactly (with the exception of using olive oil for veg. oil). The taste and texture were great. It was loved by all! I will definitely use this recipe again!
Super duper chocolatety! One slice was all I could take. Definately a chocoholics cake.
Awesome recipe! First gluten free cake I've made. I used it for my son's birthday celebration and it was the hit of the party! Easy to make. I did put 1 tsp. of xanthan gum, and a little more cocoa to the frosting - just 'cause I'm partial to cocoa! Thanks for sharing! I will definitely be using it on a regular basis.
