 Contest-Winning Moist Chocolate Cake
This proves you don't have to spend a lot to serve an elegant and delicious dessert. We have friends who are very picky eaters, and this is their absolute favorite chocolate cake. You can quickly mix up the batter in one bowl, bake your cake and serve a crowd for just 14¢ a slice. —Christa Hageman Telford, Pennsylvania
