    Thank you for your question, Tina. 1 cup is about 236 milliliters. Enjoy!

    Thank you for your question, Ikazulfa. We would recommend using one of our
    frosting recipes listed on the site. The combination of whipping cream and
    cocoa will not hold up too well as frosting for this cake. 

  3. Allrecipes says:

    Thank you for your question, Grace Su. You want to use the baking soda in
    this recipe to help the cake rise. Happy baking!

    Thank you for your question, Perp E. You can use the same amount of
    sweetened cocoa, but reduce the sugar by a few tablespoons. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! It all turned out fine! Only I used Carob powder instead of
    cocoa! If someone does the same, use only half a cup of Carob powder
    because 34 was too much

  8. What frosting was used for the cake in this video? :)

  9. Tyurru360 says:

    I don’t suppose you’d have the same recipe in British measurements?
    Translating cups to grams is a finicky process.

  10. Adilene Klink says:

    Hi all recipes i made a different cake before and it was delicious but this
    wasn’t my favorite was it cause I used vanilla milk instead of milk?

  11. Antara Raisa says:

    Hello! Is it possible to JUST use the baking powder? 🙂 

  12. Allrecipes says:

    Thank you for your question, Thai rox. You can certainly use coconut oil
    instead of vegetable. It’ll give the cake a very slight hint of coconut
    flavor. Enjoy!

  13. StarleePie47 says:

    If you’d like the cake richer, you can replace the water with coffee.

    Doing this for my girl’s bday.

  16. ben smith says:

    Can u use flower oil instead as veg

  17. Jessie Hudson says:

    Can I use 1 cup of hot coffee instead of 1 cup of boiling water? And if I
    use a 7 inch cake pan, how many cake will I get? Do I have to adjust the
    baking time?

  18. Allrecipes says:

    Hi, Mad Bro – To answer your question about mixing the cake by hand instead
    of using a mixer, you are welcome to do this. The batter will seem thin so
    you might consider using a whisk too. Enjoy the recipe!

  19. Allrecipes says:

    Hi, Maca Harvatt – That’s so frustrating! We’re sorry to hear this recipe
    didn’t work for you. It does sound like there’s a problem with the oven
    temperature setting (even new ovens can have problems), so our
    recommendation would be to try a different recipe and see if the same thing
    happens. If it does, this will be your clue that the oven is to blame. Here
    are some options:

    Good luck, and let us know what happens.

    can the cake tin be square

  21. Allrecipes says:

    Hi, Erana Bennett – Yes, to make a single cake, you will use half the
    amount of each ingredient. To make it easy to determine these amounts, open
    the recipe page ( and
    find the line “Original recipe makes 3 pounds” (or whatever the finished
    amount is for the recipe). Just to the right of this line, click on “Change
    Servings.” This opens a new line with a box to change the number of
    servings. The recipe’s original amount automatically shows in the box; for
    this cake, it’s 24 servings. Type in “12” to indicate half the serving
    number, and then click on “Adjust Recipe” just to the right. All the
    ingredient amounts will immediately change to the new serving size. Enjoy
    the cake!

    tried. This is now my go to chocolate cake recipe.
