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.

I had been looking high and low for this recipe! Thank you! This is the exact cake that was served in the school lunch room when I was in school. I had great feelings of nostalgia and longing for that cake. Now, I can have it any time. This is the best and easiest chocolate cake ever. I put a thinned out buttercream glaze on it to make the "wacky cake with white icing" that was on the menu.I LOVE this cake!

I love this recipe! It is my "go-to" solution for an easy chocolate cake. Seeing as it doesn't require eggs or milk or butter, It's easy to make when you're on a low budget!!

My sister made this cake for our mom's birthday using Splenda in place of the sugar because mom is a diabetic. We topped it with Sugar-free frosting #56881. I liked how nice and moist the cake was. Very tastey but not too heavy. We enjoyed it very much.

I did not have cocoa, so I made it without. It turned out great. I had the kids help me make it. They enjoyed baking and eating the cake. I felt safe letting them lick the bowl too. Easy to follow directions and a wonderful outcome. This is a keeper.

This is the best cake! My mom has made this for years. This is everyones favorite cake. We're not frosting eaters, and this cake is GREAT all by itself. It's sooo moist, and just the right sweetness... We also call it "Wacky Cake" This is a MUST TRY if you haven't. =)

i still don't understand how this works, but it does-- so well. this produced a wonderful moist chocolate cake. i brought it to work and it was sampled by 10 people, everyone loved it, and no one can believe the small amount of cocoa powder and lack of dairy ingredients. easy to prepare, easy cleanup, quick cooking, and my lactose intolerant friends were begging for this recipe. need i say any more? thanks so much cindy lynn!
