We were craving chocolate cake, but had run out of eggs. I found this recipe on AR and it was lovely (even though I screwed up quite a bit). I skipped sifting the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda and just dumped them into the batter (out of sheer laziness)! Also, not having enough oil on hand, I substituted the oil for slightly salted butter (3/4 cup). I altered the order of a wee bit because I always like to beat the butter and sugar until light, add the essence and then add the flour and liquid (water) alternately into the butter mixture.
This turned out to be quite a HUGE cake, also because I baked it in a 10" round deep cake tin so I'd suggest baking it for a little more than 1 hour but do watch it carefully to prevent burning!
Thanks a lot Ginger for sharing this cake! We didn't find it bland at all ... infact for all the screw ups I made, I thought this was a very forgiving cake! :D
