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

Ive tried loads of chocolate cakes and they always taste burnt no matter how low i put the oven at. But this one was moist and chewy best one ive done. Cant wait to gt sum cream one a slice tonight!! I also ad to use golden caster sugar as i dint have normal. - 17 Dec 2013
