This cake has a chocolate topping poured over the top of the batter, and as it bakes, the chocolate layer sinks to the bottom!

Helpful Tips:

It's really a cake in a pie shell. That's why it's funny. If you do it right, the chocolate you pour on top should end up on the bottom. Works great as a breakfast treat with coffee, or I use it as a holiday classic too!
