I have a question....when you say cake tin, what size? It looks like a layer cake, but the ingredient amounts leads me to think different. - 10 Jul 2011


Altered ingredient amounts. 1 3/4 sr flour 1 1/2 cups sugar 4 tablespoons cocoa 3 eggs 1 cup milk 125grams butter 1/4 teaspoon bi-carb soda 1 teaspoon vanilla i also cut it into layers and spread between the layers with raspberry jam and whipped cream then covered the cake with Chocolate ganache - 28 Dec 2009


great, easy recipe. ready in no time these were a hit with the kids! I made them into cupcakes and iced them with my chocolate creamcheese icing. They were moist, fluffy and delicious! I added an extra tablespoon of cocoa to the recipe. Will make again. - 21 Jan 2011
