My hubby raved about this cake and he doesn't really care for cake. It was very fudgy and good.



I have never had such a moist cake. I loved it!!!



This recipe was easy to make. However my cake did not cook all the way in the centre even after adding 10 minutes of baking time, I then took it out as the sides were getting burnt. The flavour was OK, but I was looking for something more "chocolatey" and a bit sweeter. Thanks for sharing.
