It is easy, you just dump all the ingredients into the pan (8x8), mix it right in the pan, heat, and eat. I hope you enjoy it.

This is a great basic recipe for some experimentation. I didn't have cocoa so used hot chocolate mix. Because of this I added 1 tsp nutmeg and a dash of cardamom to pump up the flavour a bit. Very moist. Wonderful when eaten warm. My DH and DS both loved it. Next time I'd try adding cinnamon, perhaps even cloves. I'll even buy cocoa and try the original (^:"
this almost the same as my friend's cake, she makes it in a baking dish. I have made it heaps of times, but I have found it works better for me if I mix the stuff in a bowl first. very moist and chocolaty, I ice it with chocolate butter frosting
I think I hate you..LOL ;-) I love this cake, it's chocolatey and moist, and so simple that I ended up making it 3 times in one week. It kept disappearing..lol. Thanks so much!
