My daughter and I prepared this cake together tonight, and we both had fun! It was so easy to mix together, and ready to eat in next to no time! We baked it for five minutes, but found it was slightly on the dry side. Next time, I will check the cake after four minutes, as my microwave oven has a high wattage. I served the cake with custard, and we all enjoyed it! I can't wait to try out your other recipes, Tulip-Fairy! Thanks!
This was a nice quick way to get a sweet fix. I didn't have golden syrup so subbed a mixture of corn syrup and maple syrup. The sugar/butter/syrup combination is almost caramel-like and together with the cocoa gives a slightly different but very good flavor. The texture is very moist and chewy, almost spongy. The children all liked it and I'm sure it will show up on our table again. Thanks so much for posting!
