As written this recipe would produce a dry cake, normally cake recipe proportions are 1 part fat, 2 parts sugar and 3 parts flour, so I reduced the flour to 3 cups. I also remember my grandmother whisking the cocoa with equal amounts of hot water when she made her marble cakes, I used 1/4 cup of hot coffee. I used some fat free sour cream I needed to use for the milk, I topped it up to 1 cup with skim milk, I needed to add more milk to the batter as it was still too thick. I increased the vanilla to 1 tbsp as well. I checked mine at 45 minutes, I had few crumbs on the toothpick, I turned off the oven but let the cake sit for 10 more minutes and it was perfect. I used Baker's Joy spray and the cake slipped out of the pan perfectly. This brought back wonderful memories of my grandmother's house on Sunday afternoons.
1/2 recipe bakes in a 9x9 pan in 25 minutes.
