very easy to make, very moist, very nice and chocolatey. however i added a bit of caster sugar second time round as its not sweet enough for my personal taste. but a great recipe nonetheless. thank you peachey xx - 22 Aug 2012


This is do easy to make and I have even turned it into muffins too ☺😊. I have made this with Orange essence and mint extract too and it's wonderful with both. - 15 Jul 2015


I have done this cake already 5 times, and have experimented a bit: instead of sugar I have substituted it by condense milk and instead of milk I have used quinoa milk with chia. I just love this recipe as is the first one I have learnt and already enjoyed and share the final cake with friends and family, they like it very very mych and I love it! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Lila ( Costarrican)from Australia - 31 Jul 2013
