Made this for a quick chocolate fix. Had enough chocolate since I also added chocolate chips, but I didn't particularly like the texture of it.

This was cakey and not as good as I hoped for. I will try again another time with margarine instead of oil. Also I didn't have self rising flour and used a substitute flour for it. On the other hand my 3 yo loved making it and loved eating it.

Made this but cooked it in a 400F oven in a oven proof dish. Came out like a lava cake!! Yummm
