    This is one of the easiest chocolate cakes ever to make. Just mix all the ingredients in a mixer bowl and bake! Minimal cleanup.

    I have been baking cakes for over 60 years, and this is without doubt the easiest and best chocolate cake I have ever made..dense, moist and lasts wel l(if husband and grandkids let it!) The only revision I made was to increase the cocoa to 1 cup for a slightly denser chocolate taste. - 03 Jan 2014
