Let me start by saying that I'm a very experienced cook of 30+ years. I was looking for a low fat chocolate cake & thought I'd try this one. In my opinion this recipe needs three major adjustments:
1. Double the amount of chocolate
2. Add the chocolate mixture just before blending the flour & sour milk; the recipe instructions give no indication of WHEN to add the chocolate. This could be disastrous to a novice cook.
3. Use a 9x9 pan (9x13 is way too big, as the cake will turn out very flat)
This cake was ok. The recipe did not call for nearly enough chocolate, so I had to keep adding chocolate, and then it ended up being too chocolaty. The cake itself was ok, it is a rather dense cake. If you try it I would double or triple (no more than that) depending on how dark you like your chocolate.
easy to make, just a little dry. I followed reviewers advise and added more cocoa. I upped the hot water to match the cocoa amount
