  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan. Combine the flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in prepared pan. Mix well with a fork.
  2. Make three "wells" in the dry ingredients. Pour oil in the first, vinegar in the second, and vanilla in the third. Pour milk over the top and mix all ingredients with a fork until well blended. Pour chocolate chips over the top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with moist crumbs. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then cut and serve directly from the pan.

Fantastic cake--very moist, very chocolately, very easy to make. I have no idea why anyone would choose to mix it in the pan, though, unless it's just for the novelty of the idea, and to avoid dirtying a bowl. Next time I make it (and I will make it again) I'm going to just mix it in a bowl and pour it in the pan. I followed the directions this time, but stirring the mixture in a pan that's been greased and floured results in the cake sticking to the pan in places. Not a huge problem, but it would be easier to serve if it came out cleanly from the pan. Plus, the ingredients would be much easier to mix thoroughly in a bowl. It's fun to call it a crazy mixed-up cake and give funny directions for making it, but it's not practical to stir it in the pan. But it is a delicious cake, so thanks for the recipe, Peachey!

This does taste like the crazy cake of years ago which is a general, but plain chocolate cake without a chocolate punch. The chocolate chips help, but it's better to mix them into the batter.

My family gobbled up this yummy cake in no time flat! We'll be making this one again!

I followed this recipe exactly, including mixing it in the baking dish. I had no problems with it sticking to the dish. The only problem I had was the baking time. I had to bake my cake closer to 45 minutes and it was still a tad doughy on top. Still super yummy, though! If you are looking for a fantastic, prize winning recipe, then this is not it. However, if you are looking for an easy recipe (with ingredients that are almost always on hand) to satisfy a sweet tooth craving that will please the whole family, then this is it. It is definitely worth giving a try!

This cake is fabulous and so completely easy! I didn't want to run the risk of making a mess mixing it in the pan so I added everything but the chocolate chips to a bowl and mixed thoroughly. Then, I dumped it in the pan and sprinkled the chocolate chips on top. It cooked for 35 minutes in a stoneware pan and came out with the perfect consistency and tasted fantastic. I made it for a scrapbooking crop and it was a HUGE hit. You can't get any easier than this and get this kind of flavor. Try it!

Excellent for cravings! I used raspberry vinegar, and the fruity boost made my night.

This cake was so simple to prepare and it was chocolatey goodness! Do add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to this dessert for the ultimate treat! Thank you for this easy, one dish,no fuss, no muss, chocolatey goodness!
