  1. Absolutely wondrous recipe, really felt like cake one afternoon so gave this a try. I was suprised how well it came out, seeing as I didn't use the correct ingredients (I used instant hot chocolate -you have to add extra for it to be chocolate-y, mine just had a sweet cocoa tinge- instead of cocoa, missed out the vanilla extract and didnt have any milk!)

    My mum is a vegetarian and is vegan when she can be, so the eggless essence of this meant that we didn't have to waste money on eggs 🙂

    One thing I will add is mine (with my adapted ingredients) came out a little tough at the bottom. I'm not sure what caused this (the lack of milk? Even though I add 4 tbs water to substitute? or instant hot chocolate?) but I would recommend leaving it in for 1 minute 30 sec and then judge how much longer it needs from there.

    Other wise, thank you! It was absolutely delicious x
