Tip

I find using the butterfly gives this cake a ligher texture.

    No idea why but mine didn’t rise? It looks like a chocolate pancake and I can’t understand why as I followed the recipe exactly, except for only using 100g of sugar. Any ideas what went wrong? Also used a fan forced oven

    This was DELICIOUS!! I made them into small cake logs (in silicon moulds) and then iced with this recipe:

    Reduced the sugar in the cake to 100g as was suggested below, and it was absolutely perfect, paired with the sweet buttercream icing. The mini chocolate cakes took around 20mins to cook.

    A very basic tasting chocy cake if that's what your after. It is moist though and looks great. I don't think much of the icing as it's too sweet and gritty myself.

    Submitted by Thermo Loving Liv on 5. September 2015 - 12:06.

    Just made this cake for my hubby for fathers day tomorrow. I can't comment on the taste as I'm making it for him and his work colleagues who have to work on fathers day. It was really easy to make though. Only issue I had was after inserting the butterfly. Perhaps I didn't insert it properly but it made issues with the timer (it took a few seconds before it would start counting down). I remembered my rep saying the butterfly is only necessary for whipping cream and egg whites, so I took it out and it mixed fine and no problems with machine. Cake looks good. Thanks for the recipe!

    I too had my cake fall to pieces after taking it out of the tin....bugger lol!

    The cake however is so easy to make and is so moist & delish that I will try again - right after I go and grab some more eggs  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Second attempt has worked better. I left the cake in the tin for about 40mins before turning out on a cooling rack.

    Submitted by ajay on 4. May 2014 - 21:05.

    I had the same problem tmrc_emoticons.( have had cakes crack a little across the top before but this one split down the middle then one half split into quarters. It may have been because it rose to a peak so when I flipped it out on the cooling rack the weight of it pulled the sides down... maybe????? I am sure it will still taste great...

    Submitted by obiii on 4. May 2014 - 18:06.

    I baked this yesterday as a childrens birthday character/layer cake. Ive misplaced my butterfly so just mixed 30 seconds instead. Doubled and baked in two 29 x 39 cm roasting tins for 30 mins.  I used http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/chocolate-cream-cheese-frosting/158710 as the layer filling and regular buttercream on top. This was dense enough to hold up to the manipulation but still nice and soft and fluffy. Perfect cake for it!

    Submitted by Karen on 26. March 2014 - 18:34.

    I always use large to extra large eggs, so maybe your eggs are too small? Each oven is different, which may account for the longer cooking time, but it sounds a bit too long.  I have just made this cake this afternoon and it cooked fine in my oven at 180C, no fan tmrc_emoticons.)

    Hi I made your cake tonight and doubled the recipe.  I had the same result as Maggie 1995.  I cooked it in a gell cake tin increased the baking time by about 20 mins until cooked through.  Waited 20 mins or so to turn it out onto wire rack and it literally fell apart.  What did I do wrong?

  • I'm very happy with this

    Submitted by DeeD on 20. September 2013 - 12:45.

    I'm very happy with this one... Thanks!

     

    I actually doubled the recipe and was a little worried when I had flecks of butter throughout the mixture but it turned out great once baked (in two 20cm round cake tins), so next time I might let the butter soften to room temp or a little more even. I also reduced the amount of sugar and cocoa but you wouldn't know, still tastes great and is staying together as you'd expect, when cutting it does not crumble/fall apart any more than normal. I'm sure my daughter and her friends will love it!

    Tell me what did I do wrong. Made this cake today for my daughters birthday. What a disaster, the cake seemed to crack up while cooking, when I took it out of the oven and left it to cool more cracks started to appear when I turned it out of the tin it was like watching a earthqake cracked all over and fell apart before our eyes. It does taste very nice/ BUT.  HELP
