    Before i made this recipie i thought that it wasn't going to turn out great, but it tastes great!!!. But the next time i do it i'll use less cocoa powder!!!!! :)

    Use 1 cocoa, 3 milk and do it in a small-medium cookingbowl with vanilla ice cream.
    Also try this, Stew apples and mash them up. Make this cake using these ingrediants but with no cocoa and 3tbs milk, cut a thin layer of cake and place it over the apples, Add some ice cream on top of it.

    it smells nice but it tastes like it has way to much cocoa it was disgusting it would work if there were way less cocoa but it is a gud recipe!

  • Mike 8 years ago

    Cooked it without the cocoa, tasted fantastic (especially with a good helping of golden cyrup to accompany it!)
