Fans are demanding an Australian television network reimburse them for costly wasted ingredients used on a chocolate cake recipe with the wrong preparation instructions, News.com.au reported Thursday.

Channel 7 confirmed the recipe - posted on the hit cooking show My Kitchen Rules website - was incorrect, leaving fans at boiling point and demanding the network cough up the dough for the ingredients wasted.

The My Kitchen Rules Facebook fan page and official online forums were inundated with comments from viewers who spent up to $35 on the recommended "best quality possible" ingredients for Clint and Noah's chocolate mousse cake, only for it to emerge as an unsalvageable "choc sludge".

A representative for Yahoo7!, which runs the show's website, labeled the debacle "choc-gate".

The representative said the dish was in fact prepared differently on the show and confirmed the cooking method, cooling time and pan size as advised in the recipe were all incorrect. ...link (http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpps/news/dpgonc-fans-grill-australian-network-over-chocolate-cake-recipe-fc-20100225_6271457)

Anyone with any baking experience should have noticed the errors as they were putting it together and stopped making it .Whats the problem,feed it to the chickens and start again with a proven recipe !

I'm with Moo here. When I read a recipe I know whether or not it makes sense and I have a really good idea of how the end result will taste based on the ingredients and preparation.

This was pathetic:


"I am in my pantry crying... I had a dinner party here tonight and everyone has been commenting on the slop I have served!"

What kind of idiot test drives a never-been-tried recipe at a dinner party? How incredibly stupid would you have to be to actually serve something substandard just because you were planning on it? :eek:

Of course reading a recipe is a minimum, but for many people that is rather too much bother. Cook first sue later. :D

Bake nothing without first gathering the ingredients then rereading and understanding the recipe.I've seen many an error in a recipe even some in famous cook books.Baking soda for baking powder,Tablespoon For teaspoon,
salt for sugar, scalded milk into yeast .

Too true! The tablespoon/teaspoon error is very common.

I can read a recipe and know whether it's going to work or not. Some things take time to learn, like making spinach pie. I had to experiment with that a few times to get it right, but I was determined and didn't care if I dropped $35 to learn it. Now, even the greek woman at work admits that mine is better than hers! There are about 3 or 4 of us at this office who can really cook-we supply most of the food for the potlucks, when we have them.



There are just some things I can't do-I can't flip eggs or pancakes properly, and I can't get rice to turn out right, unless it's pilaf in a box or Uncle Ben's. I can't even get Minute Rice to work right, so I don't bother with that. I make pasta dishes, instead of rice dishes.

I used to get Southern Living magazine, which was a replacement for Victoria when the latter went out of business. I tried several of their recipes-all of them worked and all of them tasted good. Two or three have made it into my regular cooking schedule.

We took to the hills of Wales armed to the teeth with sheep, LEDs and a camera, to create a huge amazing LED display. Of sorts. For more info search for samsung LED TV or visit samsung.com/LED

Last time I looked, Wales was in England, you IDIOT.

The small picture is what it looked like on the TV, the larger picture is made from the recipe, it's touch and go as to whether it is solid enough to stay on the plate. :D
