Chocolate cake

Overall cake was good- I could have baked it for less just to keep in some of the moisture-since the cake came out a little drier than I expected.

Make it Quicker too!

This can be cooked in the microwave in about 8 minutes. Use a Tupperware Silicone baking form (bundt) and cook at full power. Makes a very moist cake! People are amazed to get a cake within 10 minutes.

This is one of my absoulte favorite recipes to make. The cake turned out better than I thought it would and the icing was so very delicious. My family loves it!! I will definitely make this car again and again.
