This is a very good and easy dessert to make. My husband thought they were rich but I didn't think so. They are a cross between brownies and chocolate cake. I used 2 ounces of semisweet chocolate since that's what I had and I also used milk chocolate chips for the top. I will definately make this again when I need a fast dessert. Thanks for the recipe.

This was a VERY good simple chocolate snack cake recipe! I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate, so I used 6 tbsp of cocoa powder and 2 tbsp of oil to replace it. I also substited 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce for the 1/3 cup of oil to cut down on fat. It worked and it came out very moist. This is just a great quick cake you can whip up last minute to satisfy your sweet tooth/chocolate craving! Thanks for the recipe Kittencal!
