Notes about this recipe

    I have made this for my niece's birthday as a second cake. Had to be gluten free, as I only have GF flours, and egg free for my niece. Used 140g brown rice flour and 60g of tapioca flour, plus two flax eggs. Inadvertently used the sugar I use as a pie weight. Like another reviewer, I only needed two thirds of the icing. Fingers crossed that it tastes ok. Update: my niece loved it! As did others.

    A soft and moist chocolate cake. My kids and I loved this. Mr lilham find it too sweet. I added less sugar then specified (180g for the batter, but full amount for the icing). I needed only 2/3 of the icing on the cake.

    Cake was easy to make and turned out okay. It was a great success with the kids and those who like things extra sweet. A bit too sweet for my taste, but acceptable. Not sure if I'll make again. Perhaps for a kids party.
