About this recipe: This rich chocolate cake is fantastic and made entirely with cocoa powder. Use the best cocoa powder that you can afford! Ice with a chocolate buttercream for a great birthday cake. You can make two 23cm round cakes instead of one big cake.
A decent cake. Nice chewy, gooey texture, but not very chocolatey. Not very anything, actually. Definitely needs a chocolatey topping! Next time I'd add a bit more sugar and a bit more cocoa powder, I think. It also took almost twice as long to cook as the recipe said (and I'd halved the quantity as well!). All in all, a good starting point, I think. - 06 Jan 2011
This recipe is great, easy to do and the kids loved it - 15 May 2011
Light and fluffy but not moist and not chocolatey even when added extra cocoa powder. The cake was also so dry it stuck to the bottom of the baking tin. Waste of time and ingredients - 15 Aug 2014
