Ratings & Reviews



Very quick easy and delicious. If you are having chocolate chips form a layer in the bottom of pan, dust them with a little flour or cocoa powder before mixing them in. This trick works with nuts as well.


This was fantastic. As I buy my chocolate chips in a large bag, I used 1.5 cups of chocolate chips in place of a 300g package. Cooked for 30 minutes and it was perfect. I think next time I will mix the chocolate chips with half white chocolate chips in both the mix and topping.


Love it! I sprinkled 1/2 cup of skor bits on the top as well... so delicous will make again soon. Plus no dirty dishes but the pan :)


Perfect when you need a chocolate fix!!


Wanted to make something quick for dessert, and this was it! Absolutely delicious and super chocolatey. Will make it again for sure.


This is a very quick and easy dessert and leaves little to no mess. I have made it about 4-5 times now and it is delicious every time. It's best served warm (with ice cream or whip cream). I've made it for guests and they like it too. It can be pulled together rather quickly with ingredients I typically have on hand.


I love this as it is so easy to mix up really fast. My son loves it as he hates any type of cake with icing. I play around and add different chips like a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate. I find this cake very moist. If yours was dry, it might have been cooked too long or at a too high temp. My old oven cooked things very fast, this one not so much. Try taking a couple minutes of cooking time or lower your oven to 350.


I found this cake quite dry and crumbly--Did anyone else have this problem?



Instead of using the Bakers Unsweetened Chocolate (because i didn't have any) I used 2 large tbsp of peaunt butter and melted that in the oven for 4 min. Mmm Mmm Good.


i've done this recipe twice now and i can't keep the chips from forming a layer on the bottom of the pan. can anyone give me any pointers?


Very good and rich. Almost brownie like. I was worried it would stick to the pan but it didn't :)


Very good!! I used half regular chocolate chips and half mint chips to give it a minty taste and it was perfect!! Will make this again for sure


Very delicious. I only used half the sugar, and it turned out great.


Very delicious!! Recommend to all! Even the school principal!


This cake was good! I used milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips to sprinkle on top. Definitely quick and easy. I used dream whip as a topping also! Mmmmm ...


It was delicious, small pieces make this cake go along way because it is quite sweet! Very moist and so easy! I had my doubts right from the start but this will definately be one I'll make again!


It was very easy to make, but not as much flavor as I would have liked. It was still pretty good but I'll stick with a regular chocolate cake, it is worth the extra time.



oh ya!u gotta try this. UM!UM! good.
