I've been making this recipe for years. The only thing is that it says to bake for 40 minutes. I live in Colorado and it only takes 30 minutes, just something to keep in mind for your elevation...

Yummmmmmmmmmm... this was delicious! I just finished a piece, and this "cake" turned out to be exactly what I wanted it to be: light but still chocolatey, gooey, and so delicious! It's not like ...

This can also be made in the microwave! Mix the dry ingredients in a glass 2 quart bowl. Add the other ingredients as listed. Then microwave at 50% power for 9 minutes, turn dish, then cook hi...

Wonderful as all have said. One good point is that the cake batter is so thick it can be difficult to spread evenly in the pan. Using clean hands, lightly dip fingers in water and you can spre...

A chocolate lover's dream! Fantastic still warm with whipped topping. Would not change a thing, except maybe to double the recipe! *****

I cooked half the amount for 20mins. Both the husband and I liked this but wanted it to be more cake so would cook it longer in future.
