unsweetened cocoa powder
i was a little scared by the first review as i use the reviews to help in my decisions when using these recipes but decided after reading a few more that i would tweek it just a bit and use it any way and it was great! my changes were as follows and believe me or check my profile sweets are my addiction and after the tweeks everyone who tried it wanted the recipe and my love who is especially particular raved about it, its a keeper!! i used all butter no shortening, i cut the flour to 2 c flour & used 1 1/2 c cocoa for a richer chocolate flavor , i just cut the sugar back a little and used some brown as follows 1 1/2 c wht sugar & 1 c dark brn sugar packed, 1 tsp each baking powder & baking soda & switched the milk to buttermilk for that homemade taste. i cut the vanilla to a tsp, as i said im a chocolate lover!! lol!! lastly i switched the nuts for chocolate chunks and iced with vanilla, striped with melted chocolate, filled the center with hershery hugs and what a hit!!!!
This recipe is awful. It tastes like your eating right out of the crisco jar. I am a seasoned baker so I know what I'm talking about. Do not spend the effort or money making this monstrosity!
This cake tasted delicious! Very easy to make, too. It is definitely a POUND cake- so not something to make when you want a light chocolate cake. I plan to make this one often.
I was a little skeptical after reading the "seasoned baker's" review but I made this cake and it was delicious. Soft and moist, with a light chocolate flavor. I doubled the recipe to get five 8' round layers and baked each for about 25 minutes. I used this for a groom's cake and got good reviews.
Delicious cake!! A tad bit time consuming, but worth it!!
i have made this cake it was beauteful
First, let me say that the baking powder was left out of the directions part but was in the ingredients section. Second, I added it with the sifting of the flour and the other dry ingredients. I must say that I am totally sastisfied with this recipe. I want to send in a picture of my version, how do I do that.
Very good, VERY rich. I used the modifications published by floridatreasure1983 in her review, and really, really loved it.
