This sounds totally bizarre but makes a chocolate cake that is everything a chocolate cake should be. It was emailed to me - one of those recipes with vague details - and unfortunately whoever wrote this up in the first place didn't specify the dimensions of the baking pan; I used a 9-inch square one and it turned out fine. If you wanted to make a layer cake I'd double the recipe. I bet this would be great with frosting or icing sugar or something on it, or with chocolate chips in it. It makes one of those nice dense yet fluffy, very moist cakes. Yum. I will definitely be making this one again. And again. This cake also happens to be gluten free, as long as your baking powder doesn't have gluten in it.
