"So so so good! So so so little work. Well, yeah, come on, you DO have to measure the ingredients. And a simple glaze would be good. But if you are really, I mean REALLY, pressed for time, place a paper doily on the cake, sift confectioner's sugar over it, lift carefully and there you have it. And this is sooo much better than a cake mix. I use an 8" square scalloped pan; that makes it look really special. Nawww, that's not cheating. It's just taking a little help where you can find it! Recipe was found somewhere on the internet April, 1998. That's how long I've been making it."

"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."
"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!"
