Not only is this chocolate cake incredibly moist, rich, and tasty, but it also leaves you with NO dirty dishes. None … nada. It’s a dream come true.
This recipe is one of the best finds I’ve had in a long time. I love it … love it. Why? Because I didn’t have to do the dishes afterward!
I hate doing the dishes. Are you with me on this? If so, then you’ll love this cake. Check out the related blog post for a picture tutorial on how to make this decadent dessert.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In an ungreased baking pan, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Did you catch that? Whisk your dry ingredients together RIGHT IN THE CAKE PAN.
Make three wells into the flour mixture. Pour oil into one well, vinegar into another, and vanilla into another. Pour lukewarm water over the entire pan. Mix well, making sure to scrape the sides and bottoms. Use a rubber spatula and then a paper towel to clean up the sides.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. While that’s going on, kick your feet up and relax. There’s nothing to clean up (well, except the spatula, but if you are like me, you licked that and stuck it in the dishwasher).
Sprinkle warm cake with chocolate chips; once they’ve melted, smooth them over for a frosting. Can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days. Serves 16.
Note: I found this recipe on the blog Stop and Smell the Chocolates, after seeing it linked up to a blog carnival. She got it from Woman’s Day magazine (February 2006).

She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
