I made this delicious cake for my family as a practice run for my Birthday on Wednesday. I am making a cake for myself at work and wanted a really good recipe. This is fabulous. I didn't have good luck with the frosting because I didn't have any baking cocoa, so I improvised, it turned out okay. I can't wait to make the frosting with all the right ingredients and report back.
The cake turned out moist and firm and my husband absolutely loved it, he thanked me for the wonderful meal and dessert.
I used a wand mixer instead of a traditional hand mixer. It made the batter smoother and I think that is why my cake turned out so firm, but deliciously firm, a really good firm for cakes in my opinion. It was just the most AWESOME cake I have ever made from scratch, and I have only made a few. I actually ruined my daughters birthday cake one year by using a recipe I had not tested first, so we blew out the candles but couldn't eat the cake, we just had ice cream. NEVER AGAIN will I have a botched birthday cake, this recipe is MMMMMagically yummilicious! :) :) <3 <3
I used one goose egg and one chicken egg instead of 3 eggs. I kept all the other measurements the same. I'm so happy with this find. I can't wait to make the fudge cake.
