Best ever Chocolate Cake/Jenny Bongers

The conversion from cups to grams seem odd. Also oven temp and times need to be clarified. Mine turned out fine with a very fudgy centre. I used cup measurements. It certainly didn’t need 1 1/2 hours cooking time at 160 fan oven. Nice easy fudgy cake. But please could someone adjust the recipe!
Great recipe

Feedback channel unusable, recipe needs clarification

Prev submitted form apparently failed to capture, and I can't be bothered typing it all again. Recipe needs clarification about oven temps and cake tin sizes. I was unhappy with the result. Submitting this brief version so you can fix, or at least warn others before wasting time and quality ingredients.
