One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

“You will never make a box cake mix again! Seriously!  From Allrecipes with thousands of views, you have to try this! They also have a video of it.  It must be the boiling water! This is too good and too easy to miss! Throw everything in one bowl, and wow, what a rich, very moist, delicious cake!  I just love the soft texture of the cake!  The best box cake mix doesn’t even come close to this!   It is so –o easy and fast to make!  And I like this cake without any frosting!  It is amazing! A new favorite for me!  Enjoy!”
