THIS RECIPE WAS AMAZING!! Made it for a birthday celebration and everyone wanted a slice, to the point there wasn't enough to go around. Like what the other reviewers suggested, i changed the 1 cup boiling water to 1 cup of boiling hot coffee. I used an instant coffee bag and it turned out just fine. Kept everything else the same, but used another chocolate frosting recipe.
To get a flat top, let your cake cool after taking it out of the oven, for about 10-15mins. Mine did puff down which allowed me to get 2 flat top cakes, i placed the tops down, facing each other and slapped some frosting between, so the flat side (bottom of pan) would be the base and top. Do wait for the cakes to cool before frosting else it would turn runny.
Fantastic cake and i would make it again! (Well i have to cos everyone has requested this for the subsequent birthdays) DO GIVE IT A TRY, NO REGRETS!
