What a fantastic chocolate cake!!!!! Moist, Dark and so yummy with clotted cream. It was very easy to make a real hit with everyone who tried it. I didn't have a ring tin so used one large sandwich tin but it didn't seem to make much difference. Mrs Clancy, you deserve a medal!!

Mrs. Clancy is a star. This cake is so easy to make and so tasty. The chocolate flavour is subtle which perfectly suits the one here who is not too fond of chocolate. Grease the cooking tin liberally. I had trouble getting the cake out in one piece, meaning I didn't get it out in one piece. By the way, I used Australian measurements -- from a North American point of view, that meant I used 1/4 cup of cocoa.

I always like to try a cake recipe where I don't need to cream the butter first. This was a nice moist chocolate cake. The instructions were easy to follow as well. I only made a 1/2 recipe and used a loaf pan - approx 22 minutes baking time. Thank you for sharing.

WOW, as a chocoholic, I HAD to try this one and man, it is GREAT! I skipped the milk and substituted it for real orange juice aswell added the freshly grated zest of the orange. Baked it in a 9 inch pan and dusted it with sugar and cocoa powder. I will try the same recipe with a bit of cinnamom around Christmas, too. THIS IS A KEEPER!Tanks sooo very much for posting!
