Hi,Why not share chocolate cake recipes that we have tried in our homes and have given best results. Most of us do try different chocolate cake recipes at homes (seen from a book, TV program, or self created) and some of them do produce excellent results, if not all. So why not share those proven recipes with others as well!!I'll be posting my yummy Choclate muffin recipe really soon. So stay tunned!

Hi, Please send receipes that have been tested by you in your kitchen to give excellent results and not just any recipe from cook books. All book recipes do not give good results. And this is what we want to avoid EXPERIMENTING!
