This is the quickest, easiest cake I have ever made that always comes out moist and perfect! I got it from a friend and have had many requests to pass it on to other friends and family.

So easy and delicious. We didn't get round to eating it until 2 days after cooking, and it was so moist, similiar to a chocolate mud cake!
