The Simplest, Easiest Chocolate Cake you'll ever make. A variation of the screwball cake or crazy cake, this was the first cake I ever learned how to make and I'm still amazed at how simple it is to make. All the ingredients are mixed in the baking pan. Wicked Simple.

If you want to decorate the cake a bit, you can dust it with powdered sugar, or better yet, cut out a cool stencil design, and use that to dust the chocolate cake with powdered sugar.
