    This is by far the best chocolate cake I have ever made in 40 years of baking. I actually used a large round tin and the cake held it's shape beautifully. It is a moist, rich, dark cake with amazing chocolatey flavour and light consistency. I can see this becoming be a firm favourite with family and friends. Three people have already asked for the recipe. Thanks for posting!  -  01 Dec 2011


    so easy and delicious! (also very easy to adjust for those with food allergies!)  -  06 Mar 2010


    Altered ingredient amounts. I noticed this recipe had NO flour in it at all, after starting to make it - which made me a little suspicious that this must be a mistake? Then googled and found a recipe almost identical but with 2 1/2 cups flour - so I added this amount of wholemeal. They seem to have turned out well (although could possibly have reduced the flour a little), so I think the flour must have been omitted in the original. Also, I used brown (sticky) sugar and substituted about half the amount of honey for golden syrup.  -  12 Dec 2009
