This is lovely. I made it gluten free by using gluten free flour, gluten free chocolate and gluten free baking powder and turned out perfect. Really tasty. Served with double cream. Will make this again and again so easy!!!!

Very nice recipe. The cake turned out very well and was delicious with a bit of cream on the side. The only reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 is because it's very sickly and just a small piece was definitely enough!

Delicious, moist and slightly crunchy on the outside. Like previous comments mine sunk toward the end but that didn't make any difference to the taste. Served with M&S Madagascan vanilla cream, absolutely divine, next time will try with hot custard. This will definitely be one to make on a regular basis.

Heaven! I baked it in a loaf tin and cooked it for a bit longer as it was a deeper cake but it tasted FABULOUS particularly with double cream.

I don't know what I did wrong but my cake remained very flat and although it tasted nice it was extremely chewy and a bit too sweet for my teeth! I am disappointed by this recipe...

Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out gorgeous. No sinking and it tastes delicious!

A brilliant recipe, really easy to make and almost fool proof. The kids love it. I baked it for about 40 minutes and as I have a fan oven put the temp to about 150, it came out just right, crispy on the outside and still a bit gooey on the inside.
