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
tried this recipe for the first time, seems to be a lot of dry ingredients to wet, i had to add another egg, more margarine and some milk to make this anywhere near a cake consistency. i followed the instructions and ingredients exactly but all i ended up with was a crumbly thick mess, after adding the extras i did get a nice cake in the end but was a lot of faffing around. - 03 May 2015
