Reviews for Favorite Chocolate Cake
"This cake is great.l I used non-gluten flour, and I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar. This cake took the substitutions well. The cake was delicious. The 8-inch square pan is just the right size of us. I made a frosting of butter, peanut butter, vanilla and coconut sugar. If you put coconut sugar through a blender, it will have a consistency like that of confectioners sugar. Everyone loved this cake."
"This cake is really good!!! Highly recommended!!!"
"I had extra "Rich Chocolate Frosting" (also from TOH) after making 2 cakes for friends, so decided to make a small cake to keep. I added 1 tsp salt after noticing there was none in the recipe.This recipe is very similar to another recipe I love which calls for a little vinegar in it and mixing it with a wooden spoon, so I added 1/2 tsp vinegar."
"I recall preparing this recipe! I just greased an 8 or 9" square pan! I did add 1/2 tsp. salt!This is a really great recipe for making a quick chocolate cake! delowenstein"
