This is a DELICIOUS cake! Makes a perfect breakfast, or even a desert! A spoon or two of milk over it is all you need to bring out the sweetness! It's a lot for 1 person, so i gave some away. Next time I'll probably half the recipe. I would definitely recommend this one! - 11/4/08
What is the original recipe without the unsweetened cocoa substituted?

I wanted to make this recipe, but chocolate isn't listed as an ingredient. Help.
