My grandmother made this all the time and so do I. The only change, which may help those of you who felt it was gooey, was that we put the chips and walnuts on after we baked it. They melted on top like a topping rather than leaving the cake batter seem undone. This really is a great cake!

This certainly was easy and tasted good, but it was very gummy--didn't cook even after 40 min. Maybe because the only cake mixes I could find already had "pudding in the mix" and this was too much pudding.

I tried this cake for a picnic. It was too easy to make, traveled well, and was great. Perfect for non-baking chocolate lovers!

This cake is so easy to make and it tastes delicious. It's like a cross between a brownie and a piece of chocolate cake.

bake cake in a jelly roll pan instead of the 9x13 and the time will be right

I've made this cake a couple of times now - it's ALWAYS a HIT. So simple, too! Thanks.

The flavor of the cake was very good. But.......No way will this cake be done in 25 mins. Mine was in the oven for 1hr 10 and still ended up gooie.

Just made this recipe for a friends Birthday Cake. It was very easy, very quick, and VERY good. Will definitely make again -- for ANY occasion! She loved it, and requested the recipe. Maybe she'll make it for MY birthday! haha
