1 1/2 teaspoons
2 (1 ounce) squares
unsweetened chocolate, melted
My hubby raved about this cake and he doesn't really care for cake. It was very fudgy and good.
I have never had such a moist cake. I loved it!!!
This recipe was easy to make. However my cake did not cook all the way in the centre even after adding 10 minutes of baking time, I then took it out as the sides were getting burnt. The flavour was OK, but I was looking for something more "chocolatey" and a bit sweeter. Thanks for sharing.
Yum!! My husband decided he wanted cake at 8:30 at night an I didn't have a box cake so we decided to try this one out just for fun and I am so glad we did, it was delicious!! I had everything around the house, it's very quick and easy! I made it in a bunt cake style and we both loved it!
I doubled the recipe and made in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. I didn't have the baking squares so I substituted with about 10 tbs. of baking cocoa (supposed to be 12 but it's all I had left, it was enough, though), and with 4 tbs. of veg. oil. I also added about 1 and 1/2 tsp. vanilla and sprinkled some cinnamon in the batter as well. I baked at 325 degrees. It was moist, which seems harder to find, to me, in a homemade cake , and it sure did rise nicely! The whole family loved it and was told by my daughter that this is her favorite cake recipe so far. I believe I'll just stick with this one! Thanks Sue!!
