"I have another recipe for chocolate cake on Zaar but this one has just become by new favourite. Unless I'm baking a really special chocolate cake for an event, I tend not to make cakes that call for chocolate as it is never in the cupboard when I come to bake! This chocolate cake is the result of years of playing around with recipes & I personally think it is fab. You get the same incredibly moist & soft sponge texture you find in a store bought cake but all the great taste of a homemade cake. In fact, I think that this cake is so rich it doesn't even need to be iced / frosted - of course, if you want a really indudgant treat, then go ahead & whack some on! I find that this cake freezes well for a couple of months & keeps well in an airtight container for around a week. I stated 1/3 cup cocoa in the recipe but if the cake if for adult chocaholics then you can always add more - I find that kids sometime find too much cocoa a bit bitter."

"Imade this for my 3 sons and husband and grandson, it is the best recpe i have ever had for chocolate sponge it didnt last 5 minuites it was so moist and chocolaty now they have me baking another one again today. thank you it is so easy to make ."
"AMAZING i made it for my brothers birthday and he said it was amazing"
"I made the cake the other day and the cake was very moist and soft. The three things that I would like to change is the quantity of the baking powder, the amount of cocoa powder and the eggs. The first two because I felt that those left a hint of after taste. And the last is to add a couple more yolks to make the crumbs hold better. Other than that, the cake was really nice. It is still moist after 3 days."
