It is certainly worth washing up the bowls! Indeed, it is a super tasty chocolate cake. The only thing I did different was adding the chocolate chips to the cocoa/water and mixing it all together. Baked the cake in a loaf pan holding 9 cups and that was the perfect size. The cake baked in exactly 50 minutes. Very yummy! Thanks for posting.
