This is great! I will make this again! You don't even need to grease and flour the pan .. thanks for a quick and yummy recipe!

This makes a very nice, fast dessert. It has a deep chocolate flavor with just a hint of coffee. I especially liked the sauce in the middle of the cake. I followed directions exactly and served with ice cream. I am thinking that a little cinnamon might be good in this.

This did not turn out very well- I'm wondering if the recipe is missing an egg? The cake texture wasn't the best and there was hardly any sauce.
