    Excellent recipe. I used 1 c. boiling water instead of 1 1/2 c. Also, used 9 in. round pie pan instead of 8 in. pan (because I couldn't find my 8 in. pan). It turned out great. Didn't look fantastic but it tasted great!

    I doubled this recipe because we were having company over. And I have to admit that I was doubting it would turn out when I poured 3 cups water over the top of it. But this is and excellent cake with a very good hot fudge sauce. We ate it while it was still hot. Everyone enjoyed this. And I will definately make this one again. Thanks for the post.

    Made this yesterday --- Checked all the ingredients carefully... ended up with a dark brown chocolatey swamp. The lumpy bits were very tasty though. The chocolate sauce is now in a container and will use it over icecream. Is it possible that the amount of liquid is too much? 1/2 cup milk plus 1 and 1/2 cup boiling water.?

    I made this last nite for my chocoholic husband! He loved it!! I chilled it in fridge before I served it. I just thought it would be better that way. I did eat mine warm tho, cause it smelled so good. It was a little too chocolaty for me, but I repeat, he loved it! The only thing different I did was to double the recipe. I was afraid 3c of hot water might be too much, so just added 2 1/2. It turned out perfect. It is also very quick and easy to make, and I didn't bother to sift the flour! I know I will be making this cake again. Thankyou Theresa for posting and giving my hubby a special treat!
