Great cake... my little brother deleted my pics of it... but u dont really needs pics of a chocolate cake most look reletively the same until iced...


Step 1: Ingredients

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 tsp salt

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
~1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate (depending on how chocolaty you want it)
2 table spoons maple syrup
5 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup seltzer
4 tsp vanilla

Step 2: Blast Music

blast your radio or a cd of choice (preferrably somthing loud...)

Step 3: What to Do

Preheat over to 350 degrees, and butter and flour to two 8" or 9"cake pans.

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Break the clumps of brown sugar into the flour. Set aside

Melt the butter in a pan, and put it in a large mixing bowl. In a double-boiler, melt the chocolate. Add it to the butter, and mix it in with an electric mixer. Add the maple syrup, the eggs, the milk, the seltzer, and the vanilla. Mix it thoroughly. Slowly add the dry mixture into the wet mixture. Once it is not lumpy, pour it into the cake pan, and put it in the oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick is inserted into the middle of the cake and comes out clean. Wait 10 minutes before taking out of pan. Ice and enjoy!

    you're missing the pictures and step of taking it out of the oven, and eating it.

    This has the potential to be a very good Instructable- you just need to fix a couple of things. I've unpublished the Instructable so you can fix it, then republish. 1) break the process out in to steps. Put the appropriate pictures with each step- you seem to have most of them already, so this should be easy. 2) make sure you've got a picture on the Intro step- that's the one that shows up on the Explore page, and convinces people to click through to the recipe. Even if your perfect picture got deleted, put something up there. The picture of the cake in the pan would do. Thanks for putting up your recipe! Drop me a note if you have any more questions.
