Easy recipe and tasted great! I was looking for a recipe that included what I actually had in my kitchen and this couldn't have been better. I baked it at 45 min in a 9in round cake pan and it came out perfect. I even drizzled more chocolate syrup on top after it baked.
We really enjoyed this cake a lot. The flavor of the cake itself is perfect! Very light and moist. I used Recipe #22877 for the chocolate syrup. I had to bake it for about 45 minutes for it to test done. My only disappointment was with the topping. I didn't feel it wasn't like a true crumb topping. Usually they have some butter cut into them to hold it together. Even thought it tasted really good, it was a lot like eating flour sprinkled on top. The flavor was excellent, I'll just make the topping a little differently next time. Thanks for sharing! It's a keeper!
