It’s chocolate, it’s cake, it’s simple to make. I love this recipe – so did my wedding guests. Moist & delicious.

So simple and easy and a hit with my children. I use the 6” to make 24 small cupcakes to freeze then use as a packed lunch pudding. They defrost by the time lunch comes along.

I personally do not eat chocolate cake. However I write this review on behalf of all the people I have made it for. They absolutely love it and say they have never eaten such a light and moist cake.

Beautifully moist recipe, as some choc cakes can be quite dry. Easy to follow instructions. Rich and decadent.

Very good.. It gives the different weight for all sizes of cakes so can be adapted for your own tins & requirements. Luxurious moist cake.

The most heavenly chocolate cake ever. The chocolate buttercream and ganache goes amazingly with this cake. A must make!

Thank you so much for your advice and tips... I've now had the chance to try the chocolate madeira recipe a couple of times and it has been brilliant! I've changed the sugar and chocolate [to light brown muscovado sugar and cocoa butter-based chocolate] as you suggested, and I can not believe the difference it has made! If you plan to produce any more recipe cards for different flavors, I would be very keen to purchase them too!

This was the first card I bought and has been made so many times now.it is a rich indulgent chocolate cake and who doesn’t love a bit of chocolate cake.
— Sharon Hodsdon, 5th February 2022
Love this recipe the cake is very moist rich and chocolaty. A lot of chocolate cakes don't taste chocolaty. It has easy to follow steps and great tips would definitely recommend.
— Wendy, 9th February 2022
OMG!!! This recipe makes THE most amazingly moist chocolatey cake. I was always disappointed with my chocolate cakes before, they didn’t seem to have that rich chocolate taste. THIS ONE DOES!!! There are measurements for up to a 13” round cake on this card and I haven't had a fail yet. There are even sugarpaste and buttercream tips included on the card. It’s a must in my collection.
