Very good chocolate cake, icing worked perfectly after an hour in the fridge. Made with 1/2 the sugar and 1/2 the chocolate for the frosting. Moist, with medium density and texture..

It was deliciously light and decadently moist. I have also made a moca java version by substituting some of the boiling water with an espresso. Also heavenly!

So moist and chocolate-y😍 I won't add the boiling water next time, the middle falls in a bit. Rather use a smaller cakepan than a larger one. Easy to bake and family loves it!

This cake is easy and quick to make and super delicious, will definitely make it again! I did however use less water which probably left it fluffier

Not a fan, way too moist and sweet

They were right! mixture is very thin so it'll seep through fix in trays.. Loved it after leaving the icing to seep through the cake for a day... icing is the best part❤

Excellent cake- very moist and rich. I found it took 40 minutes to bake, but maybe my oven is slow. I made the ganache in a bowl over simmering water rather than directly in a pan as I have a history of burning chocolate! For the ganache I used half 50% cocoa and half 70% cocoa plain chocolate as I find if you use all 70% it’s not sweet enough. I also added a tablespoon of brandy to the ganache.
