I have a yellow cake recipe that I really like, and I want to turn it into chocolate cake.
The recipe I have is for yellow sponge cake. It uses egg yolks and whites, vanilla, vegetable oil, buttermilk, butter, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cake flour. I have dutch process cocoa and good bittersweet chocolate on hand. I know I need to remove some flour to add cocoa, do I need to remove anything to add melted chocolate?

that said, i'm all for experimentation and trying new things, and that there is buttermilk and baking soda in the recipe is a good start. tell us what happens!
