"For when you don't want to put in a lot of effort and don't want much washing up to do afterwards. I would just serve as is, but you can frost it if you want to. UPDATE 5/20/7: Some of the reviewers have not liked the combination of cloves with chocolate that much so I'm making inclusion of that ingredient optional. If you're not sure, cut back to 1/4 tsp, or try adding just a tiny bit to a small portion of the dough and see if you like the taste--or just leave it out altogether."

"I cannot give this any stars YET since I have not made it. I like the concept. But instead of those spices I am going to use instant espresso powder. I think that would be great. Thanks for the idea!"
"This was an easy and chocolaty snack cake, but I think I will leave the clove out next time, and just use cinnamon and ginger. I used half brown sugar and half Splenda, and served with a dollop of nonfat vanilla yogurt."
"What a wonderful cake! It is unbelievably easy to make and it is very moist and very chocolaty! My family really enjoyed it, too. I will make this again! Thanks for sharing!"
"My kids loved this cake. I loved the taste and the easy cleanup. It was easy to throw together as well. Thanks for the recipe."
"I really love this cake and will make it often, but next time I'll cut back on the cloves. Their flavor was just a touch too strong, but I really love the taste of them in this cake. Very good and different with the spices added. And you can't get any easier!!"
"Moist, delicious and chocolate--can't beat that. This recipe is very easy and clean-up is a breeze. No frosting is required. "
"Great cake.....kind of like a chocolate gingerbread cake....mmmmm. I had a small amount of left-over cream cheese frosting, so I put a thin layer over the warm cake and let it melt in...I just couldn't wait for the cake to cool. The cake is a little spicy...the cloves are quite dominant, but very tasty."
