One-Pan Double Chocolate Cake

Can “Made from scratch” be as easy as a box cake?

ŸYes! The One Bowl Mixing Method – This is “Ask Judy’s” favourite type of cake. All the ingredients are measured into a bowl and everything is beaten at the same time. Just like making a commercial cake mix. Now you cannot use the excuse that you can only have success with a boxed cake mix!
