Like many others, the recipe AS WRITTEN DID NOT WORK for me. It came out dense to the point of tough; dry, and not edible to the kids. I tried it a second time, following the many excellent suggestions to reduce flour, change sequence of preparation, etc. The result was dense and MOIST and quite tasty. Here's what I changed: **Flour reduced to 3cups. **Baking powder increased to 2tsp. **Doubled the vanilla increased cocoa powder to 1/3 cup of more. **also used brown sugar instead of white, cause that's what I had. **Whipped butter then sugar for a long while. **Added eggs one at a time, beating til smooth each time. **Added flour-mix and milk in alternating thirds, mixing just enough to blend. I checked for doneness long before the stated time, and removed as needed.
