Contest-Winning Moist Chocolate Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
Gross! Followed the recipe exactly. This was a spongy, soggy, greasy disappointment rather like a science experiment than a chocolate cake. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE FAKE REVIEWS. Don't waste your time. Find a real recipe.
OH WOW! This cake was wonderful. I didn’t want my kids to have the coffee-caffeine so I substituted the coffee for hot water. It turned out perfectly.
MAKE THIS CAKE! Very moist, rich. The picture posted here is horrible BTW, you should change it. It looks deep brown, chocolatey. The batter will be very thin, don't add more flour, don't put less liquid. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used skimmed milk. kids loved it, so I will be getting decaf just to make this, but I don't think caffeine got to them...I hope. Some chocolate chips would make this so extra.
I made the cake with two cups of 2% milk in stead of coffee and butter milk. Also added about 1/4 cup of walnuts. It was delicious and moist. Great recipe and so simple. Like it for not using any butter.
Loved this cake, my new favourite chocolate cake. I used slightly less coffee, about 150ml as it sounded a lot of liquid, it came out perfect. Is there a way to turn this into a vanilla cake? I've tried so many and yet to find one I like.
The cake was delicious! I even made my own icing and drizzled it on the warm cake. It added additional flavor. 1 cup confectioners sugar, 2-3 cups of milk or heavy cream, 1/2 tsp of vanilla abstract and pinch of salt! Yum!!
I love this cake! I’ve made it now 5 times. I don’t particularly like frosting so am always looking for a good Bundt recipe. I use the Hershey’s dark cocoa and this comes out so intensely chocolates and moist. I’m done looking for a chocolate Bundt recipe. This one is a keeper!
I agree this is a great cake. My family has been making it for 35 years. It is actually a recipe by the Hershey Chocolate company called Black Magic Cake. No offense to the contest winner, but let's give credit where it's due.
I made this tonight and used unsweetened applesauce instead of canola oil. It was perfect. Didn’t have buttermilk so used whole milk and vinegar.
Why do all of these recipes use canola oil? It is made from rapeseed, which started life as an industrial lubricant
