It was not terrible. But it was probably close to the worst cake I've made from a cooking light cake recipe. I would agree it was pretty floury. Also, I thought the salt on the cake was very over powering. I'll definitley NOT make this again, when there are so many good cakes out there..
A little work intensive but a nice result. I had to cook mine longer than the 23 minutes, so make sure to test the middle.
This cake has become my go-to recipe for simple and fancy occasions. It is always met with rave reviews and I often receive requests for it. A great tasting and shockingly simple recipe. I make it exactly like it is and serve it with everything from roast to thai. Enjoy.
Fabulous dessert, very light and flavorful. I followed the recipe and found the preparations exceptionally easy. I've used this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's a holiday favorite!
We loved this cake! I used just 2 TB brown sugar in the egg white and a very dark, even smoky, bittersweet chocolate. The cake has a great crumbly texture and a very adult strong chocolate flavor. It's like something you'd get in a good Italian restaurant. The coarse salt (and it needs to be a coarse salt) on top is a great touch and next time I might add just a wee bit more.
My daughter made this for Thanksgiving. I love chocolate but thought the cake was blah and the ganache was just ok. The leftovers were still on the counter 5 days after Thanksgiving. Not a winner at our house.
Very easy and tasty! I didn't think this tasted floury as other reviews have stated, but I don't think I will go through the expense of buying cake flour the next time I make this; I will just use all purpose. Make sure you use coarse grained salt. The sea salt that I had on hand was fine grained and just disappeared into the chocolate.
I made this for a Thanksgiving dinner and it is a very pretty cake. I doubled the amount of vanilla after reading that the cake can taste a bit floury. Next time I will add another oz of chocolate to the frosting just to have a little more. Easily get 10 servings out of this.
This was an interesting cake with the salt. It was really good and everyone really liked it. I followed the recipe exactly and will be making it again. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because like a lot of light cakes it was a little floury to me but still yummy.
This is an excellent recipe. The cake is moist and the salt adds an unusual flavor that my family really enjoyed. It was easy to make and I will definately make it again. I didin't change anything.
