    Cindy Lynn's Note:

    This is Mom's favorite chocolate cake. Easy to make and has a little different twist. Also has no eggs or dairy products. Pick your favorite frosting for the top--Mom likes 7-minute the best.

      Made this tonite and it was soooo easy. The texture is wonderful, a little heavy, almost a brownie like texture. It is not overly chocolatey or sweet, which was perfect with the buttercream frosting I used. I did not have a square pan, so I used a 9" round pan and it took 30 minutes. Very good recipe for a quick, snack cake! Thanks :) P.S. I am posting a picture which I am sure will not do it justice, but you can still see it looks pretty tasty.

      My Mom used to make this cake for my family while growing up and all 6 of us loved it !!! She called it the 3-Hole cake or Poor Man's cake since it does not take eggs or milk. I now make it for my family and have the same results - they love it. I especially like it because it is not as sweet as other chocolate cakes and its extremely moist. Another excellent feature in the prep time is short and clean-up is a snap since you only use the pan to prepare and bake the batter.
