A Different Cake

READY IN: 53mins
Recipe by MizzNezz

We have trouble eating up a large cake, I end up throwing out a lot. So here is my answer to that problem. This makes a 9 inch round, simply delicious cake that I know you will love. And it's easy to make, so you can always have a fresh one.

MizzNezz, this was, indeed, excellent! Easy and quick to put together...and just the right size for a party of 4! I usually tweak recipes even just a little to suit our own personal tastes but I didn't change a thing when I made this cake (although next time I might use Kahlua instead of the water!). I even baked it for exactly 45 minutes! I don't know if it was suppose to turn out this way, but the texture of the cake was pleasantly fudgey! I will absolutely be making this again and again! Thanks for a great recipe! M&Mers
