Cake batter bitter, will cake taste OK?

Yup, remember weighing out the sugar.

Just tried the cake and it's fine. Not too sweet and chocolate flavour is very subtle. Maybe I was tasting all the raising agents from the self raising flour and baking powder and the cooking process eliminated the taste?

Glad it's worked as it's a goodbye cake for a friend that's moving!

Did you remember to add sugar?

Bought eggs and milk today so hopefully nothing off!

Nope definitely baking powder! The cake smells OK, it's almost done. I guess I'll have to slice off a cheeky bit for, erm, quality control.

Not sure my marbling is as neat as Mary Berry's! : )

You didn't use bicarb instead of the baking powder did you? I did that once - it was 'orrible!

There is only one way to find out and that's to cook it!

Maybe one of your ingredients were a bit 'off'? Eggs? or the milk?

I hope its now in the oven and your kitchen is full of baking smells.

Looks like a lovely recipe btw

I made this.

I had a lick of the spoon, as you do, and the batter was very bitter. Is that just the self raising flour and will the cooked cake be OK?

Thank you!
