This cake is so good, no need to use an electric mixer for this it's all mixed by hand in a matter of minutes! This cake is so moist and so chocolaty. If you are a cinnamon lover add in 1 teaspoon. You will love the simplicity, texture and taste of this cake!

Strange but delicious! I followed the directions exactly. I thought the ratio of liquid was a bit too high, but went out on a limb. My cake took about 45 minutes in our electric oven. It had a texture very similar to pudding cake and was really good warm. I didn't bother to ice it. Even cold, it is good--sort of a brownie like affair. Was sorry I didn't have any vanilla ice cream to go with it--had to make do with milk!!

I was looking for a quick and easy chocolate cake recipe to whip up for dessert, and boy this is it. Like one of the earlier reviewers I halved the recipe and baked it in a 9x9 pan. I made a few changes, substituted unsweetened Applesauce for the oil, 1/2 cup of regular sized milk chocolate and peanut butter chips, and 1/2 cup of quick cooking oats. I baked it for about 25 minutes and it turned out spectacular. I will make this many times. thanks for the wonderful recipe.

This cake is so tender and moist! I used regular chocolate chips and replaced the cup of water with coffee. I also needed to bake the cake for about 35 minutes. I used the icing from my Chocolate Sheet Cake. This is a keeper, Kit! My boys, hubby and I thank you so much.
