You have probably baked your test cake by now so I am curious to see how it went!
ceshell,OK I am back ,sorry about the delay in posting my reply here.
I tried baking the cake on Thursday at night.I baked a 10"round ( with half recipe)
I baked it at 300'F and it took close to 45-48 mins.
The cake didn't rise as much but it did dome a little bit.I covered it with seran wrap about 5 mins after it came out of the oven.
I checked the cake after 30 mins and to my surprise the dome was gone!!! and all I had was a perfectly leveled cake surface!!!! I took the seran wrap off and had a piece
YUMMMMYYYYYYYY deeply chocolate cake.its almost like eating a VERY good quality brownie.My 8 yr old son LOVES McCallister's Deli's chocolate cake and he said that this cake is exactly like that one
then I wrapped the cake real good and left it in the freezer.
The next morning I took it out and let it defrost for a few mins.
Then I cut bite size cubes of the cake to store in the fridge and to give to my friend
the cutting was so easy because it was still a little bit frozen and I was able to cut straight lines without messy crumbs.
Anyone who ate this cake LOVED it!!!! I like the fudgy texture...melts in your mouth.
I give this recipe 5 stars!!!
Friday,I made Dede Wilson's chocolate cake from her book, Wedding cakes you can make". LOVE IT!!!
