unsweetened cocoa powder
3 1/2 cups
sifted confectioners' sugar
I made this one night for myself & my family & everyone LOVED it! It wasn't messy but it did take ten to twenty minutes longer to prepare & finish in the oven, but it came out DELICIOUS!
This a review for the frosting. I made a different recipe for a cake and put the frosting on while hot. The frosting had lumps of pwdered sugar in it. Be sure to sift the sugar. I still think the frosting was too sweet. I'd use a little less sugar.
This cake was 'da bomb'! I made two substitutions: I replaced one cup of flour with one cup of whole wheat pastry flour & I replaced one cup of sugar with one cup of Splenda for baking. It baked for 40 minutes and disappeared in about the same amount of time! It was quick and easy; just follow the directions to the letter, baking for 40 minutes.
Needs to cook 40 min.
This is a wonderful, moist, chocolate cake. It is definitely fast and easy to make. No creaming the butter and sugar together, and no greasing the pan!
What else can one ask for?
Love this quick and easy cake. I also poked hokes in it beofre adding frosting and it was moist and wonderful. Have made twice now and will make again.
This is flippen unbelievable!! I followed the cake to a T but added heavy whipping cream instead of milk for the frosting, Yep extra calories but oh so worth it!! cant wait for the hubby to try some!
Good cake. My first from scratch. I would put more chocolate into the batter; the cake was moist and otherwise a big hit. I served it with a cream cheese frosting.
