it was good

Delicious . I made this cake in the kitchen whizz. Most successful . Absolute fav of everyone.

Hi. I thought this was a good recipe and a comment that I had to make is that it didn't take an hour to bake but then I might have used a different tin to what you guys have used but I thought that I would just say that. Overall it's a good recipe and people ate it quickly. Definitely recommend it ☺


I've made this several times now and defo the best choc cake recipe :)

Not sure what went wrong but I followed recipe and it was a horrible heavy tasting cake definitely won't be making this again yuk

I baked this cake for my mum and she loved it soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much

Very good

Great but a lot of dishes after.

After many years of successfully baking gluten free I was recently in need of a gluten flour cake. I made this cake and it was amazing. It was just as good a few days later too.




I made this for my friend's birthday and she loved it.
