Easy Chocolate Cake is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this for my son's birthday cake. The first attempt, I didn't warm the milk and eggs to room temperature, so when I pour them and the melted chocolate into the butter-sugar mix, the chocolate solidified in little pieces. I redid it and warmed the milk and eggs in the microwave and cooled the chocolate (a little bit, but not to room temp) in the fridge. I only cooked it for 40 minutes and it was a little overdone but not bad. I would start checking on it around 32-35 minutes. Otherwise, it is a good recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don't know if I did something wrong.. But it turned out to be more of a gingerbread/ spice cake so I wouldn't consider it a chocolate cake
