I am rating this recipe 5 stars after I have made a change or two. I bake this for weddings every weekend and have never had a complaint, only rave reviews so I guess this recipe speaks for itself. Substitute the baking soda with baking powder and add an additional quarter cup of milk......Best ever!
I'm with Tianne on this one. We did not like this cake at all. It was very bland and not sweet or chocolatey at all. It raised very nicely and had a good texture, but that's about all I could say about it. I poked holes all over it and melted some frosting and poured it over it to add some sweetness. I then put a ton of frosting over that. I really expected a great cake with the ratings. I was very disappointed.
I made soe changes after reading reviews and cake came out moist and chocolatey. I used 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup boiling water. I used two squares hereshy unsw chocolate and 3tbs cocoa dissolved in in the water. I added 1 tsp baking powder. With adjustments a great chocolate cake.
Great chocolate cake! I made a little change though- instead of using cocoa, I melted 1 1/2 cups chopped milk chocolate and semi sweet chocolate chips, and made an icing of melted chocolate, butter, a squeeze of orange juice, splash vanilla and powdered sugar. I'll definately make it again!
I'm only 12 and made it by myself - it was so good. I used white cream icing on it.
This is absolutely THE BEST cake I have ever made! It was even better than a Betty Crocker mix. I paired it with the Chocolate Frosting submitted by Tianna.....delicious! Even my husband, who doesn't like sweets, LOVED it. This will be THE chocolate cake I make from now on.
This recipe was really REALLY bad. I followed the recipe exactly. When it came out of the oven I was really excited because it looked beautiful but when it came to eating it.. it tasted bland, the texture was crumbly.
I made this chocolate cake for a birthday party and it was a real success. Even one person that does not like chocolate cake ate it saying it was the best cake she had ever eaten. Great recipe.
