After baking a few rounds of 'Too Much Chocolate Cake' by Denise, decided to try out this start from basic recipe. From the collective reviews, I did some alterations. Replaced water with low fat milk, add 2 egg yolks, 1 tsp coffee powder. Used 60g cocoa, reduced flour to 340g, reduced sugar to 1.5cup (not a sweet tooth person). The cake turned out to be light, fluffy n moist with rich chocolate taste. Not crumpy despite the relatively low fat content (egg yolk helped too). Unfortunately 2 tsp baking soda gave a strong alkali after taste. The cake is cooked thru in 3omin. The frosting was fluffy but the low fat low sugar pudding I used lack chocolate flavour. Add in some cocoa. Used all purpose cream instead of whipped topping cos it's expensive here. Will try again with less baking soda.
