Used different ingredients. Wow! I added chocolate chips (4tbsp) to the recipe. I would make this again and let the kids help out. I'm fat gram conscious, and this is a good lower fat recipe. - 18 Jul 2008


Baked this for a birthday and it was moist and fluffy and melted in your mouth! Combined with the cheerful butter icing recipe and it was a smash! Better than other chocolate cake recipes that I've tried. - 16 Sep 2009


Easy Peasy !! Made this into cupcakes, they are very morish and everyone loves them... added another 90grms of sugar and just used plain vinegar - 17 Jul 2010
