This was soooo good! Quick and not fussy. The taste was exactly what I was craving. Had to cut back on the sugar though since I planned to serve it with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge topping. The cake came out amazingly moist and oh-so-good! This goes to my permanent recipe folder!
Very good, moist, and super easy cake. I served it with this frosting: http://www.food.com/recipe/chocolate-buttercream-frosting-208959 I will definitely make this again.
Mmmmm....nothing better than a good chocolate cake that's super quick and easy to make. The only issue I had was that it took about 45 mins. to bake. The sides baked up find, but the center took forever to cook through and by the time the center was done, the edges were a little dry. I have an unreliable oven right now, so that was probably the reason. Thanks for posting this easy , tasty recipe!
Wow this cake is truely delicious and It is SO easy to make! No eggs and milk is great too cause we always run out of those. I substituted vanilla essence for caramel essence. Also FYI it's malt vinegar in the recipe. I just put all the dry ingredients in the glass casserole dish, poured over all the wet ingredients and folded it all together. So amazing. Goes great with plain unsweetened yoghurt :D 25 min at 175oC.
I'm definitely going to do this with my kids but NOT NOT NOT on Valentines Day. It's just that there is simply too much chocolate and too many heart candies one man can take
I must be the only one that wasnt satisfied because i tried 3 times! .....3!!!! and it never turned out cause the top would turn black but the inside wouldnt cook. I moved the racks extended and decreased the time but nothing worked i followed the diurrections very carefully but i just couldnt get it!
My bf had a midnight chocolate craving last night and I wanted to make something quick without making a big mess. I remembered reading this recipe a while back and had all the ingredients on hand. I had it mixed and in the oven in about 5 minutes and it turned out really good! It is what I expected, being called a fudge cake-dark, moist, and a little heavy. I let it cool down then served us a peice sprinkled with powdered sugar and he really liked it! (This made me happy because I am not the best cook but have been learning a lot from this wonderful site!) I enjoyed it too but am more of a vanilla girl. I wonder if this would turn out if I omitted the chocolate? If anyone reads this and knows please let me know! Thanks :)
I love this cake! I took it to a party a year ago, and people are still asking me for the recipe! It definitely is a winner, and it's cheap and super easy and quick too!
Fast and easy and yummy and moist too! What a smart recipe. We skipped the frosting and dusted with powdered sugar. I actually made two 8 by 8 cakes instead of the 9 by 13. One for us and one for my parents. I halved the recipe for each pan. Adjusted to 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil in each pan. Turned out great!
i did not have cocoa powder, so i tried it with coffee instead, came out very nice...
