I agree with keyboardcat...I was pretty disappointed. It turned out pretty dry and did not hold together well. This was disappointing especially since the recipe has the word "moist" in it. Maybe it was the order of ingredients?? I followed the directions to a T so I'm not too sure...
I gave this 5 stars because it is not only simple and easy to prepare but it always comes out moist and delicious! I've made it for a few different birthdays and it's always been a hit.
Awesome recipe, straight forward quick and super easy. This took my 12yo 7minutes to put in the oven and clean up his mess. Thankyou Tyrntje
Not very chocolatey. Also the timing was wrong - started to burn at about 30 mins. Would not recommend.
i thought this choc cake was awsume!! my um loved it!! thnx!
This turned out suprisingly good; I say suprising because it was so quick & easy to whip up & turned out just as good as many cakes that have taken a lot longer to make! The instructions weren't clear about which order to mix things up in; I think if you were to beat for 4 minutes solid it wouldn't matter so much(!), but to make the mixing easier I just measured out the dry ingredients then added the wet ingredients, so I didn't need to mix them for 4 minutes. I split mine between two shallow tins so it only took 20 mins to cook, but I think with a single bigger tin it would take longer. I also had to turn my oven down a bit but I find my oven seems a bit too hot sometimes anyway. I sandwiched the halves with butter icing & smothered the top with melted chocolate, and it went down very well for my friend's birthday!
