Moist, soft chocolate perfection! I saw this on a cooking show but neglected to write down the name. Since making it, I've decided to call it the Mother of all Chocolate Cakes. Disclaimer: I will not be held liable for any heart conditions that may arise due to consumption of this cake!

I was slightly disappointed in this "cake" as it wasn't as chocolatey as i thought it would be. It's pretty good but it seemed to be more of a French Silk brownie. I'll stick with the mayonnaise cake - now THAT's a chocolate cake!

I made this for PAC. It was a little too chocolatey for the BF, but I thought it was awesome, and will definitely make it again. Thanks so much for posting this!
