How often today does one see a chocolate cake which is nothing more than a Madeira batter to which has been added some colour/flavour and maybe a proportion of cocoa powder.,,A true chocolate cake requires a different recipe altogether. To compensate for the bitterness of the cocoa powder, a higher sugar level is required and this in turn means an increase amount of water is necessary.
