I cut 1/4 cup sugar, used egg whites and low fat buttermilk and the cake was fantastic.
A simple, low-fat and—best of all—fast chocolate cake that is moist and dense.

Though the batter was watery, it turned out tender, moist and delicious. I used almond milk instead of cow milk and sprinkled almonds in the pan so, when flipped over, it would have bits of almonds on top instead of frosting. Great cake.
This cake is probably the oddest cake I've ever made. i was surprised by the watery batter, but it did turn out like normal cake. when it first came out of the oven it tasted more like rice than chocolate, but went well with vanilla pudding. after a few days in the fridge it tasted a lot better :) this dense cake fills you up and makes a great snack so its great if you're on a diet or something
I decided to make this to make up for the whipped cream icing and candy I was decorating this cake with for a birthday. I doubled it and made two layers.
I thought I did something wrong when I saw that the batter was watery but it came out normal. The only thing strange was that something separated during baking and it looked like a two tone chocolate cake. Bottom half was dark, top was lighter. It tasted fine and looked kind of cool but something obviously didn't work the way it was supposed to. That being said, husband and two year old loved this cake (stabilized vanilla whipped cream for icing) and I am making it again now.
It seems twice as high this second attempt for some reason. It was a little rubbery and sponge-like but in a delicious, moist way and hey, if you are making a low fat cake, it is likely to be slightly different. I added a teaspoon of instant coffee to the hot water but followed recipe otherwise. I can tell I will make this fairly often.
i almost tossed this cake out after i mixed it because the batter was like water. I guess it is suppose to be that way. I told myself lets see how it works out. I put it in the oven and took my chances. 30 mins later it looked like cake and done! Like the title of my review l was "SURPRISED". I let it
cool dusted it with powdered sugar and cut my husband and myself apiece and was quite disappointed it was like cutting a sponge and the taste wasn't quite right. I make cakes from scratch often and well needless to say I wont be making this one again.
