Converting a white cake recipe to chocolate cake

  • d

I love the white cake recipe offered by Cook's Illustrated some years back (I think 1995/1996). I can post the details of it if folks are interested.

But, my question is: is there a simple way to convert this white cake recipe into chocolate by removing some of the flour, adding cocoa, and changing the leavening? I know that the acid content of the cocoa can mess things up if you aren't careful...

    could you post it right now? I lost the recipe- second page anyway and my daughter is at home trying to make it.
    I use the Cooks Illustrated Best Devil's Food Cake recipe.
