What a fabulous little recipe!! And you are so right - it is fast and delicious! I just threw everything in my Kitchenaid mixer and in minutes, it was in the oven. Made 9 good sized cupcakes, baked at 350° for about 20 minutes, and then sprinkled them with sifted powdered sugar. They looked so pretty on the serving plate. Topped them with whipped cream to serve. They made a wonderful Valentine dessert and will definitely go into my keeper "Wow" cookbook. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe.

I would give it 6 stars if I could. This is the best and easiest chocolate cake. My 7 year old son made it "by himself"! Measured the ingredients, dumped it all in the Kitchen Aid, stirred, and poured in an 8inch disposable non stick pan. The taste and texture is on par with fancier cakes and light years away from a mix... Yet requires the same effort than a mix! What more can you ask for on a Sunday morn-afternoon?

Very good cake! I was amazed that so few ingredients could possibly make a tasty cake! All I had was fat free sour cream, which still turned out well. You can tell it's fat free, but still has a good taste and texture. We topped with some milk chocolate chips and pecan pieces before baking, which turned out well. The baking time was a bit longer than indicated. I kept setting the timer for a few more minutes, and wondered if it would ever get done.

This cake really is super easy and also super tasty!!!! :) The chocolate flavour is intense and the texture soft and dense on the inside with a crunchy crust on top. Mmmmmm, yummy! I added in some chocolate chips that were on hand and baked the cake in muffin tins. That worked out perfectly and made for a very satisfying chocolate fix in nearly no time. As I dont like my cake too sweet, I used only 1/4 cup of sugar in total. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us! Ill certainly make it again!

I baked this yesterday on realising I didn't have enough butter for the recipe I had planned to use. I happened to have an open container of sour cream that needed using so I gave this a go. I baked it in a bundt tin and it came out beautifully. Six of us ate the entire cake in one sitting! It's now my go to chocolate cake recipe.
