Enjoyed making this! Tasted great and frosting was delicious!
My kids loved this. So easy to make
One cup of water should be listed under ingredients. Adding the cup of water is listed as a step in the directions. Confusing. That said, it is a very good, easy cake. I mix all ingredients in a bowl and then pour in the baking pan because I am messy and can't seem to get the batter mixed well enough without slopping over the sides. Four stars instead of five for the way the recipe is written.
We did not love it. I am so sorry. It was not as rich as we expected. I would opt for a different recipe for a great chocolate cake. It was fast and easy and we did finish it but were disappointed.
I made this wacky cake and it was wacky good.
Do watch the video first.
Did a couple of changes.
1. Added 1 tablespoon more of cocoa to each the cake and icing.
2. Used 1 cup off coffee in place of water.
Did not have 8x8 baker, used Pampered Chef 8” mini baker. Big enough for cake ( will need to cook longer), but not space for icing.
Icing taste good, but gritty. Maybe needed to cook longer or mix longer? Would make again. Prefect for a serving of 4-5.
The printed version is missing the 1 Cup water... everyone loved this cake! made a chocolate ganache to pour over it and then the nuts.
