I don't mean to sound dumb....but "bake at 180 ...." 180 degress C or F
Has to be Celsius. Thats 356 F*
This cake was so simple to make, that I half believed it wouldn't turn out. Not only, is it easy to make, it is THE most moist, chocolately, flavourful, and not too sweet cake I have ever had. I am the biggest (no pun intended) chocoholic - and this was the PERFECT cake. I always get great comments on my cakes - but people were swarming around me asking for the recipe... THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!!! =)
Can I use buttermilk instead of the 'sour milk' by any chance or is this completely different?
Hi what kind of oil does it have to be ? Thanks :)
How much cake mix does his make?
Is this cake good for making a tiered cake?
Buttermilk works fine.
two questions: how much cake does this recipe make and is it sturdy enough for tiered and fondant?
