To this recipe I added an extra egg 1.5 tsp baking powder (it needs to rise somehow!) and a little extra liquid - a touch of milk a touch of water. It did rise though it is a little bland; mind you if you frost it it will be yummy - what isn't? Good basic cake especially if you have limited ingredients and feel comfortable tweaking it a little.

There's something missing to this - it's flat. I should have read the other reviewer's notes prior to baking. What a loss of time! Read More

I tried this cake and don't know if I did something wrong or not but it's flat. It didn't raise at all.I'm just wondering if there should be baking powder or soda in it to help it to raise. It did seem like something might be missing. Read More

I was curious about the low ratings... I can't see why anyone would even attempt to even make this recipe. it does not have the correct ingredients even for a decent chocolate cake! Read More

Although the dough was more like brownie batter... I just added water until it was smooth and then proceeded to add 1 tsp of baking powder. My cake rose and tasted rich and yummy! I frosted it. frosting solves ANYTHING. Read More
