Dark Chocolate Cake II
The big problem with using cocoa powder is that it lacks the absolute ingredient to have the richest chocolate flavor ever : cocoa butter. It all comes down to the solids AND butter, not the solids only. As a result, this cake (and I must admit, all cakes using only cocoa powder) is unfortunately very disappointing. I put two stars because I feel it might be an acceptable base for some heavy fillings and frosting.
