The first time I learned of this recipe was a few years ago, when a friend with celiac disease shared it with me, gushing all the while about how easy it is to make. When I first tried making it, I made my usual mistake of failing to follow the recipe to the letter and added much more cocoa powder than called for; this resulted in a somewhat drier texture with no appreciable increase in perceived chocolate flavour. After several times making this recipe, I have finally accepted that its proportions are just fine as is.
The cake’s texture is reminiscent of the results of a boxed devil’s food cake mix: a little on the denser and heavier side, but not unpleasant.
