This beautiful cake is very moist and very chocolately and is great decorated with fruit as well as with chocolate icing!
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
Made it more kid friendly. I recently made this for our mothers group joint 1st birthday, I took out the cocoa and used 2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste. with butter icing it was a hit. All mums are asking for the recipe thanks ginger XXXX - 09 Mar 2011
