Reviews for One-Bowl Chocolate Cake
Sort By :
"This cake tastes good, but for some reason it collapses in the center when it's almost done baking. I was disappointed. I won't be making it again."
"This cake recipe is just about as easy as making a cake mix cake. I usually have all the ingredients on hand, and it mixes up quickly. It's a good, basic chocolate cake recipe and one that's easy to "dress up" with frosting, toppings, etc."
"Great easy cake! Mine baked perfectly at 350 for 35 minutes timed bake, it sat in the turned off oven an extra hour, didn't burn, dry out, or fall in the middle!"
"If cake is falling try adding 1/4 cup flour to batter."
"JLBB - Try adding less water, or cooking a bit longer with greaseproof / foil covering the cake so it doesn't burn. Making it in a round tin, means you can cut the middle out ( just go round a small jar / cup ) if it still sinks, and cover it with a runny icing, so that it drips down both sides of the cake. Crumble the middle to go with banana custard, or put a big dollop of cream on top, some strawberries / raspberries and enjoy the ' cooks ' desserts! If you choose the latter option, make sure you enjoy it before anyone gets home!"
