My cousin used to make this cake all the time. She gave me the recipe years ago. It is a favorite. The only difference is her recipe specifically says cold water, so I use water from the fridge. It tastes great cold so I store it in thw fridge and I do not frost it. Once in a while I will put a very thin layer of homemade chocolate frosting on it, but ut us not necessary. This bakes well as cupcakes, also. I have baked cup cakes and set them on a cookie sheet and into the freezer to feeeze. Then I put them into a ziploc freezer bag abd freeze. They freeze and thaw beautifully. I freeze on a cookie sheet first so they don't freeze together where they touch in the freezer bag. I make it for our family picnics every year now. We call it, "Elsie's Chocolate Cake", after our deceased cousin.
making this cake is as easy as 1-2-3. I tried this recipe when there's no butter left in my kitchen. I put some additional ingredients:
1) 1/2 teaspoon of grated cinnamon
2) Lime Zests
3) 1 Lime Juice
4) 4 bars of unsweetened Hershey's cooking chocolate
5) Some chocolate chips
And the result was marvelous! It turns out to be very moist & yummiest chocolate cake I had ever made ^^,
Make this no-hassle cake! Simple ingredients and you only need a fork to mix it together.
This cake come out nice and moist. I added 1 serving of unsweetened applesauce and reduced the amount of water. This cake is fast and easy to make; I will definitely keep this recipe.
We really liked this cake. I made one change. I used vanilla yogurt in place of the oil. It was a very dense moist cake that was extremely easy to make. Will definitely be making this again and again!
My aunt gave my family this recipe years ago. She called it "Very Best Chocolate Cake" and is it ever! This is our go-to recipe for anything chocolate cake related. Her recipe calls to grease and flour the pan. I'll have to try it without, as your recipe does. As for frosting, anything goes on this cake but we most often use cream cheese frosting.

Fabulous! I made this cake for Valentine's Day for my sweetie. I cut the sugar and used 1 1/3 cup and 2/3 cup grated coconut instead. It took 55 minutes at 350.
This recipe was so easy. I mixed everything in 3 minutes and it turned out so moist and yummy. Add some frosting and you have great cake for guests or a birthday.
