in the recipe you say "2 only eggs" you just mean 2 eggs not yolks or whites only ah luckyduck

Woahhh, 2 cups sugar! ! ! !

I wondered about the large quantity of sugar in this recipe but as there is 3/4 cup of cocoa in there as well you do need quite a lot. I cut the sugar by half a cup when I made this cake and it was enough as I also iced it.

If you use a good quality dark cocoa most recipes will need a substantial quantity of sugar to offset the bitterness of the cocoa.
