I enjoyed this cake. I also used unsalted butter and all I had was 2% milk and unsweetened cocoa (not bakers) still came out pretty darn good. I made a chocolate whipped topping which was a nice touch. Thanks!! I’m a newbie to baking and try a lot of recipes I find online. This didn’t disappoint.
Love this! Wonderful taste and i love that the instructions are so clear
@Red I can't reply to your comment but if you are using salted butter and also adding the 1 tsp of salt this can make your cake taste salty. I would recommend using unsalted butter in recipe that call for salt unless you are a big salt person and like that taste. I personal do not so I use unsalted butter in all my baking recipe especially when it calls for additional salt.
Not really a review more of a question. It says 1 tsp of salt and so that's what I used but it just seems super salty. Is that right?
This cake was easy to make and took no time to whip it together and put in the oven. I suggest you watch carefully so it doesn’t over cook. I went to check mine just shy of 35 minutes, and it was done. Had I left it in there for the full 35 I believe it would have been over cooked. All ovens are not created equally, so I would just check it at the 30 minute mark, and keep a watch on it just in case. I frosted mine with a chocolate frosting of course. It was moist and delicious and devoured by the kids in no time!
My 13 year old randomly jumped up and said "I need to bake a cake!" He asked Google hub for a recipe, picked this one. Hands down the best cake I've had this year. Do not adjust this recipes ingredients (I did add a box of vanilla pudding for fluff) but this cake was amazing. Put homemade buttercream on top and some pecans. Mmmm mmmm
Four stars for the recipe, and a fifth one for the nostalgia... I remember making this cake when I was a child, in the 1970s.
