      I've never tried a recipe without ratings on this site. I was making this as a birthday present for someone who's allergic to chocolate and really misses it. I'm glad I decided to trust your recipe and be the first one to give feedback. In my oven, it took like 45 mins. instead of 30, but well worth the wait. The cake is super moist and the flavor is just perfect. Very lovely texture. I wanted to make it a "super carob cake" so I made my own carob frosting with cream cheese and butter instead of your icing. But the cake alone deserves 5 stars. Thanks Feingold Mom! I'll checking out more of your recipes. PS.: I agree with FM and also recommend Chatfield's carob for this recipe.

      This cake is great. My little nephew was diagnosed with chocolate allergy just before Easter, so I made him this cake, but as easter egg shaped muffins. Didn't time how long it took to cook them, just took them out when they looked ready. This batter was really wet.

      Amazing! I omitted the frosting to cut down on fat & calories, and reduced the sugar by 1/2 c.
