READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by JamesDeansGirl

A relatively quick and easy cake, with a dynamite taste! During the school year (my husband and I are both teachers), things get a little hectic with grading exams, papers, and my son Jake is starting pre-school in a few I'm glad to have some fast, reliable goodies on hand that don't take too much time to make or require a lot of fuss. Try it once--you'll see;)

Made it just as stated and the cake came out beautiful albeit a bit dry. That improved after a few days though. Good chocolate taste, easy to make. I am pleased to have tried it.
Thanks for posting.
