This recipe has been one of my favorites since college. It is such a good recipe when you have a chocolate craving because you probably have everything on hand to make it at a moment's notice. I love easy recipes that call for ingredients I already have! This cake is magical- you throw in the most basic ingredients, and in 45 minutes, it becomes something amazing and unexpected! Everyone loves this cake. It is good with ice cream or just a tall glass of ice cold milk!
