    I avoid liquid batter because it smells like egg when I eat it. There’s a recipe on famous site which had thousands of recommendations and I made it two, three times. Basically it tasted similar to boxed cake but the egg smell and taste was particularly strong that I come to avoid adding egg into cake. But to a cake, egg’s fundamental without egg cakes wont be fluffy and spongy. I wonder what needs to be done in order to avoid sulfur smell overall.

    WOAH STOP! baking powder and baking soda? do you know that baking powder HAS baking soda ? Read the ingredients on the Baking powder. so why put the 2 together? hishhhh! you ll end up tasting the soda in the cake. Don't make that mistake. Use either but not both.

    By the way a word of warning, glycerol monostearate can have an immense laxative effect for some people. It’s used as a supplement in bodybuilding and for a couple weeks I was randomly having explosive diarrhea every day. Took me that long to realize it started when I began supplementing with glycerol. Consider yourself warned!

    How to make this recipe better:
    1. Swap canola oil for melted butter.
    2. Add chopped up chunks of ~70-60% dark chocolate into the batter.
    3. Brush with dark chocolate ganache instead of a syrup, but don't add sugar to the ganache.
    (Optional optional) 4. I used a small amount of butter cream in between the layers, less than the video shows, and used a whipped chocolate cream on the outside
    5. Food-gasm

    Made a four layer cake with this recipe...turned into a three layer because one of the cakes totally crumbled. I was able to get the other three to hold together enough to frost. You'd think to be that crumbly it would be dry as dust, but it wasn't. It had great flavor and was actually quite moist. Got a lot of compliments from people at the event. Will use the recipe again for sure.
