I was craving chocolate cake and decided on this recipe because it looked like it would be very quick and easy to prepare. It was, and it is delicious! We couldn't even wait for it to cool all the way, so we're eating it warm with a homemade cream cheese frosting. I used a white ww flour that I always sub for all-purpose, I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 c., and I used butter because I never use shortening. I also used about 1/2 tsp. salt. I baked it in a 9x13 glass dish and it was done at exactly 30 min, though I did check at 25 just to be sure I didn't overbake. I will try the suggestions for using coffee next time, but I think it is very flavorful and chocolaty just with the water.*UPDATE* I used coffee last time I made this since a lot of reviewers recommended it. I actually think it tastes better not using coffee!
