One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
I made this recipe to spec with the exception of vanilla extract and I halved the portion to make a smaller cake. It was my moms birthday and I was hoping to surprise her with it when she got home from having lunch with a friend. The only thing I surprised her with was the horrific smell of burnt cake in the house, even though what came out of the oven hardly resembled anything close to a cake. I poured the batter into small, greased and flowered glass dishes, preheated the oven to the appropriate temperature, and took notice of the fact that as the recipe said, the batter is indeed very runny. I checked on it about every 5 - 10 minutes and after an hour, never came CLOSE to looking like anything other than soup with a thin layer of something that curdled and eventually burnt to a crisp floating on top... I'm like... 80% sure cake isn't supposed to curdle... I've botched recipes before by accident but not very often, and usually for being inattentive, but this is just insane, and it boggles the mind to look over the recipe trying to figure out where I went wrong and what kind of sorcery was being used by all the cooks who gave this 5 stars and experienced no difficulties. Any insights would be tremendously appreciated >.
