Need to find my other crazy cake recipe as this one needs some fine-tuning (the vinegar is NOT the issue, for those put off by the vinegar). 1) I will NEVER make a cake in a 9x13 pan again. Very hard to mix well/evenly and even stirring gently, I sent powder everywhere, creating a bigger mess than simply washing a separate bowl. 2) I used a high quality cocoa (AND replaced one cup of water with coffee as I always do with my chocolate cakes) and this still was barely chocolatey. Definitely needed more cocoa, although a moderate choc fan might have been satisfied. 3) This was not the fault of the recipe, but just a comment: My cake went from not done to nearly burnt very fast, so watch it closely the last five minutes. 4) Texture was good -- a wee bit oily, but probably needed that to come out of pan. Very moist & rose well. My biggest issue was the lack of chocolate taste and the one-bowl method.
