Crazy Chocolate Cake

This cake has no eggs no butter so must be healthy especially if you have a dairy intolerance, it is so versatile, I use for desserts by cutting into triangles, dusting with icing sugar, topping with boysenberries, then topping with cream & a drizzle of chocolate icecream topping, looks so proffessional, also add chocolate chips & cook as double chocolate muffins, cup cakes. Plus it keeps moist if it doesn't get eaten all at once
