Great recipe! I found this recipe the other day, and I thought there was no way it could be that easy -- so I went home that night and tried it. It was that easy! The only problem I had was that it seemed a little difficult to mix the ingredients in the baking pan, so I was afraid I had mixed it too much since the recipe said "just until blended." But it still turned out great. I topped it with a pecan/coconut frosting, and everyone loved it. I'll definitely keep this recipe and make it again and again and again. Thanks for posting this recipe for all of us chocoholics!
This cake was so easy to make, I couldn't believe it. It is very moist , but the vinegar and baking soda raising agent gives the cake a slightly "funny" taste. It doesn't taste bad, just a little "off". I frosted it with peanutbutter frosting and gave half to some friends who said it was good. Great in a pinch!
This is the BEST cake I have ever made and/or eaten! I followed the recipe exactly and sprinkled powdered sugar before serving. So moist and delicious, I was tempted to add frosting but trust me when I say it was much better without it!
The cake is moist, but the flavor is lacking. I even added the instant coffee that many reviewers recommended. It's bland.
I am allergic to eggs big time and I have to watch my milk intake. This recipe was excellent! It is so hard to find a cake without eggs!
Gotta love how easy this was to make! I halved the recipe for an 8x8 pan, and used 1/4 cup agave nectar and 1/4 cup sugar instead of the 3/4 cup sugar. It was ready in the 25 minutes and I frosted it with just a very light glaze of chocolate icing. Soooo good! Very moist, as promised. Thanks so much for sharing!
I grew up on this cake! My mom made it quite regularly because we all LOVED it! We always called it Crazy Cake. YUMMY and MOIST!!! Never wanted it with frosting because it never needed it! Mmmmmm!
I did not like this at all! I took two bites and that was all I could eat of this cake. It had a very weird after taste and definitely needed frosting to cover that up! My kids liked it okay but I will not be making this again. I'm not sure how mine could have been so bad and everyone else's could have been so good. I made exactly as directed. Go figure. Anyways, thanks for sharing.
How funny that I found this posted!! I just made one similar to this, except I used Nesquik instead of the cocoa and decreased the sugar down to about 1 cup (because Nesquik has sugar in it). It turns out soooo good and yes, it is a very cheap and delicious way to make cake!! Especially with the price of milk and eggs shooting through the roof!! Thanks for posting!
Very over-rated. I've had much nicer ones. Found it easier to mix in a bowl and pour into the cake tin. Also I used lemon juice instead of vinegar. Won't make this again.
