You do not need 1 cup oil, you only need 1/2 cup. I've been making this recipe for several years from a Baker's chocolate recipe book before I saw it on this site and I've always only used 1/2 cup. I have used regular size semisweet chocolate chips at times, but most of the time have used 1 pkg.(8 1oz. squares) of semisweet baking chocolate chopped. Either way this cake is absolutely wonderful, and does not taste like it started out as a box mix. Everyone that I have ever made this recipe for loves it. You don't need a topping at all, but powdered sugar looks pretty if you dust it on after the cake cools. If you like chocolate, you'll love this cake.
