unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups
This is delish! My mum said that it tasted like a chocolate sponge cake. however, we both agree that it's a tad too sweet, as there was this sweet aftertaste. the next time I make this, I'll reduce the sugar to 2 tbsp. (then again, we never liked stuff that was too sweet.) Also, I didnt make the icing.
Something to note - this batter only made 9 "muffins"/buns!
These are so cute to look at! I made them in my mini muffin pan to make bite sized butterflies ;). This cake is so light with lovely strong chocolate taste, which hit me at the very end. Since I don't keep self rising flour on hand I used 1 cup All-Purpose flour plus 1 1/2 tsps baking powder and 1/8 tsp salt. I used raspberry jam cause that's what I had on hand (plus it's my favourite flavour) and I only made half the frosting recipe which turned out to be just enough. It didn't come out too sweet because of that, but the surprise in the middle was very nice to bite into. Thanks for the great idea and recipe!
Pet's liquid measuring tools must be larger than what they say, because this whole thing is too dry.
The cocoa water mix was too dry to actually mix, needed at LEAST twice as much water for that, but still looked like it wasn't moist enough. However, I have no idea what the consistency for that should be, so perhaps it was supposed to be dry and I made it wrong.
Needed to add about a quarter cup extra water at the end, as the recipe acknowledges.
Icing in the picture is almost runny, (which could be because the 'bun' is still hot, in which case, they ignored their own directions to allow it to cool), my icing was almost as thick as for an oreo, and I used less icing sugar than it called for.
I used all margarine, which should have way more moisture than the optional butter.
The taste is bland, and the only reason this doesn't get a 1 is because the flavors go well together, and the presentation is neat.
