    Amazing! Made this for my son's birthday, as his request was for a chocolate cake and he loves Whittakers dark choc. The flavour, texture and appearance were wonderful, I made a double mix for a 2 tier cake with chocolate oreo buttercream. I will be making this again many more times! ❤️

    Cake tastes great but it took twice as long to cook. I read it as 125ml hot water. It did make the batter very runny.

    Have made this cake many a time and it’s a crowd favourite! My kids love it and I make it as a wedding cake as it works well with a solid structure! I sandwich it with a cherry compote which makes it a decadent dessert cake. Love it!❤️

    Excellent rich, moist cake. I couldnt find 62% chocolate but used half 50% and half 76% and it was fine. Lovely rich, chocolate taste. Took maybe 45 minutes in the oven, but not more. The ganache was also excellent and managed to get some of those ganache-dribbles down the side, so it looked as good as it tasted,

    Delicious cake - like the others said it also took me an hour to cook through the middle. Can i ask how much water is mixed with the coffee granules? Is it 125ml?
