  1. This is so easy and fast. Perfect snack cake. Light texture and moist, and just chocolatey enough. I will make this often because the ingredients are simple things that I always have on hand.
  2. This was so easy and very good. I just sprinkled the choc. chips on the top of the cake before baking but I didn't swirl them in so they stayed on top of the cake, which eliminated the need for frosting. It rose nice and evenly. I liked that this recipe made a smaller cake because I have a small family and it's a nice size for us. Thanks Kitten!
  3. Yup - it's the best chocolate snack cake!! Cut down a bit on the brown sugar and used low-fat milk. Didn't add any walnuts. Brought this to the office and was gone within an hour - so I guess it means it is The BEST Chocolate Snack Cake! Thanks Kit! :)
  4. Kittencal made this recipe just for me. What a woman you go kitty.
  5. Very easy and delicious cake. I did use hot coffee in place of milk. After I mixed the egg and oil into the flour mixture a little, I folded in the hot coffee. Came out so moist and light. I put a drizzle of white glaze after cooled. YUMMY ??.
