This chocolate cake is moist, cheap and easy to make. Great for large families. 3 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 6 tabs cocoa, 1tspn salt, 2 tspns Baking Soda, 1 tspn Vanilla, 3/4 cup Oil, 2 tabs Vinegar, 2 cups water. Mix all ingredients together and bake in oven tray or similar dish at 180 for approx 30mins. Ingredients sound weird but it is absolutely brilliant, very tasty and moist, my 10 year old makes it.

bowiefan, if you're wanting to find a specific recipe or topic there is no need "to wade thru the 174 pages" - the search option at the left side of the main MB allows you to add a Keyword and a Date posted option (if unsure use the"Last year" option) and that search will find any threads with those relevant keyword(s), thus eliminating the need to search endlessly through a whole MB.:-))

hi bowiefan - it is the one valentino posted above - it is me you were talking to on my hubby's a/c - it is really the best choc cake I have ever made.I double the mix and cook in big roasting pan for parties etc.Ice with ganache - this is what I do - say 250ml chream and 250ml chocolate melts - melt choc over low heat and take off heat and mix in cream - mix really well together.I normally make this up several hours before I want to use it and just put it in the fridge till ready.If I am using the roasting pan one I cut it in half (use a piece of cotton to do this - much easier than a knife) fill centre with choc cream put top on and ice.This cake stays really moist for ages, freezes well - just the best cake ever.Now that you have found the TM cooks site dont be a stranger - it really is a great site.I will see if I can find you the link to fisher's site where the older lot of TM recipes is stored - but will be later on as flat out at the moment.Enjoy.PatDid you end up getting one of the other tins for your daughter?
