I've made 'one bowl' chocolate cakes before and they turned out pretty good but for some reason this one had a bizarre aftertaste. Not sure if it was the cocoa - I used Tollhouse cocoa, brand new/fresh. I followed the recipe exactly. I'm a bit confused what kind of cocoa was implied here though - I believe the one I used was regular cocoa, not Dutch-processed, but with regular cocoa you use baking SODA to neutralize the acid and with Dutch-processed you use baking POWDER, yet this recipe uses BOTH. Why? Not sure. In any event, the cake had a decent texture but the aftertaste ruined it. Sad as I made it as a birthday cake.
