Quick and easy cake to make and a nice desset. I did use butter and baked for 40 minutes. The fudge sauce was a bit watery tasting so I would either add more cocoa or use less water. This is not an overly sweet cake which was a nice change. I added some Hershey syrup to the top of the cake because we didnt eat it until the day after I baked it and there wasnt a lot of sauce. Made and reviewed for PAC 2008.
