There is a mistake in this recipe! It should be 2 teaspoons (tsp) of baking powder, not tablespoons. Maybe that is why some people have complained about the texture of the cake... I make this cake for my mom's birthday every year - it's been her favorite cake since she was a kid. The dark chocolate swirls are a nice contrast to the sweet, fluffy chocolate filling. It is best served cold, and we think it gets even better a day or two after it is made. To answer another reviewer's question, yes, it should read 1 1/4 cups evaporated milk in the cake itself and another 1/4 cup evaporated milk in the filling. I buy a regular 12oz can of evaporated milk, measure out 1/4 cup milk for the filling, then dump the rest of the can into the cake batter. I have measured it, though, and it ends up being just about 1 1/4 cups.
