Chocolate Snack Cake

This rich cocoa cake from LeeAnn McCue is so tasty, there's no need to frost it. "But it's wonderful served warm with ice cream or whipped cream," suggests the West Springfield, Massachusetts cook. Sweetly priced at 8 cents a square, it's just the right size for a small family.
