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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 14, 2014

"This is the most delicious cake, I've made it many times, just a sprinkle of confectionery sugar makes it perfect, if I make if a gift, I get a silk seasonal flower for the center just as pictured. I have a convection oven, for those who do, cook it 5 min. less, either that or watch it carefully, when overcooked it becomes dry and not so 5 star, but still delish with a scoop of ice cream on it, so don't heave it, freeze it in chunks for just that purpose."

"The best chocolate cake recipe I've ever made. It was consumed in less than two days at my house; my teenagers loved it! Moist, chocolatey and so easy to make. I made a chocolate ganache and drizzled on top. Delish!!"
