This is my favorite chocolate cake. It’s moist. It’s chocolatey. And it’s egg free so it can be made with basic food storage items without the cost of dried eggs. I like it best with mini-chocolate chips on top. Boneless
My daughter brought this one over for my birthday.
CHOCOLATE CRAZY CAKE (Pantry Cooking)
- 3 cups flour

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
