This cake is so chocolatey and moist, and so easy to make. I made it with my 2 1/2 year old, and he had a great time. If I hadn't made it myself I never would have known that it's w/o eggs.I wil...

This is a good basic chocolate cake. It's easy to put together with ingredients usually on hand. I frosted my cake with a jumbo Hershey's bar. I broke it into sections and placed evenly over ...

I made this cake for a friend with a dairy allergy. It tasted pretty good - a lot like a boxed cake mix. It would work as a vegan cake as well. I improvised a non-dairy frosting of melted sem...

The cake was very moist and delicious. It was perfect because I needed to make cake but I didn't have any eggs! I think I'll stick to this recipe and save my eggs for something else!
