    Looks like a great recipe, but I wish it had conversion measurements for those of us who aren’t on the metric system. I know we’re in the minority, but we don’t have a clue about how to convert. Still, a great looking recipe!

    is there missing instructions here? lil teochew website mentioned that flour, baking powder etc need to be sifted… vanilla is also required but nothing was mentioned here…

    I have just tested this recipe and I must say it is an excellent cake! I had to bake it a little longer than 50 mins and used a 6″ round tin, which I had some left over batter. I think an 8″ tin would be perfect. I didn’t have cake flour and used plain flour instead and it worked out fine. It’s a fool proof recipe. This is definitely gonna stay in my recipe collection for a long time. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :) my friends and I truly enjoyed the cake.

    I made this a couple of nights ago and it turned out brilliantly – even if do say so myself!

    For those in the UK, self raising flour is fine in place of cake flour and I sifted the flour, baking powder, bi-carbonate of soda and chocolate powder (cocoa) into a separate bowl and used that combination where the recipe calls for the flour to be folded in.

    I used a round 9 inch (or so) spring-form baking tin. I reckon mint chocolate would be a nice topping.

    Made this today. Awesome recipe, the best chocolate cake I’ve tried to date. I’m a beginner in baking and heck if I can make this turn out great imagine how awesome the cake you pros would’ve made! Thank you for sharing :)

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. It was really delicious. Nearly finish half the cake all by myself…. really a delicious sin.
    I couldn’t get baking soda in Switzerland, so i just add another half tsp of baking powder.

    Follow the recipe the cake found a little hard, may be the flour hv to be reduce., I use 56% cocoa dark choc. With added 1tp cocoa powder. With the 50mins of baking the cake is ready, I’ve to Prolong the baking period to 1hr15mins. The taste is good, can I separate the whisk of egg yolk and egg white? Thanks.

    I made this chocolate cake for a friend’s birthday and it was a big hit. The best chocolate cake I have ever made. It may look a bit dry but it is moist, dense and rich in chocolate flavour. I used 99% dark chocolate from Germany and it really made a difference. I don’t think I can find richer chocolate cake than this. Double thumbs up for this recipe. Bravo!!!

    HI,
    I made this cake few days ago and i found that the 250 ml milk was way too much. Isnt it so? The cake came out all cracked probably due to too much liquid? Can u help? Thanks

    If I bake my choc.cake for 50 mins, the middle part would still be soggy but when I bake for another 10 mins the face of the cake would crack. My cake would be hard if it’s in the fridge, only in room temperature then it would be soft n nice. I think it is a bit oily as I can feel the oil in my mouth. By the way I used plain flour.
