This recipe seems to be very versatile and forgiving

The first time it was made, Daddy made it, to the recipe, he seemed very surprised how much it made, I think the give away might have been it saying 4 cake tins required!

It turned out a little dry, but was perfectly lovely to eat, would have been great to shape for children’s birthday cakes, and strangely it got moister over the next couple of days.

When I made it for the first time I made it I felt the cocoa/water mix was very dry, so I doubled the quantity of water, this made a much moister cake, so it works either way.

We have also made a smaller version by halving quantities.

Although the last time I did this I halved most of the ingredients, it was only as I added the flour (halved) bicarbonate of soda and baking powder, that I realised I had forgotten to halve all of them, but once the bicarbonate of soda and baking powder were mixed in with the flour it was too late to worry.

It still tasted fine, so as I say it seems to be a very forgiving cake.
