My six year old daughter did all the measuring and mixed this cake with a whisk. Talk about easy! We used 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 tsp salt in place of the melted margarine, and we added 1 tsp instant coffee granules to the hot water. Moist, dark, easy, and takes ingredients we always have on hand. Five stars plus, in our book.

Simple & delicious! I subbed organic coconut oil for the margarine with perfect results.We love our dark chocolate cake topped with white frosting, so I made a simple butter cream with confectioner's sugar to top it. Will be using this recipe again. Thank you for posting!

I made this today pretty much as directed except I decreased the hot water to 3/4 and made up the diff with Kalua (coffee liquor). It came out great, dark & chocolatey, moist and sweet. I could eat it by itself but I did make a simple chocolate frosting to top it. I guess I needed a little pick me up. It really is an easy cake to make and just what I was looking for, thanks!
