Something else. I made this recipe for my son's class. And it was wonderful. He has severe food allergies and this recipe is both egg and peanut free. I added chocolate chips to the batter. I made cupcakes instead of the cake and I baked them for 22 minutes @ 180 degrees. - 18 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. I read all of the reviews before I baked this. I used another 1/4 cup of cocoa and replaced the salt with vinegar (trust me!). Suitably chocolatey and no after taste. Next time I'll try a slower oven and longer bake time to try and avoid the crust. - 16 Sep 2010
