This is a very rich hot fudge cake that I got hooked on when I was expecting our daughter - just couldn't get enough of it and now she loves chocolate....Hum... Anyway, this is a easy recipe that I love warm with ice cream and my husband loves cold and plain. Happy gobbling!:o)

Great eggless cake! I made it this afternoon. Enjoyed it warm with chilled vanilla ice-cream - real melt in the mouth delight! Thanks for sharing - I dont blame your daughter for liking it so much!! :-)

My family felt that this cake was not sweet enough. We are all big sweet eaters and the sweeter the better!! I probably will not make this cake again.

Tasted like it was missing something. Not sure exactly what it was, but it just tasted bland. I won't be making this again.
