    A good chocolate cake. The icing is delicious.

    Quickest chocolate cake ever, only one bowl needed. Used an 8 inch cake pan instead of the recommended 9 inch pan, increased baking time by 10 minutes. The frosting is delicious with a nice tang from the ceam cheese, however bringing the melted chocolate to the same temperature as the rest of the frosting takes much longer that 10 minutes.
