Absolutely! The Chocolate Dump-it Cake on this website is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. I'm an avid baker, and this was one of my co-workers' favorites even though I make WAY more complicated things all the time.

This recipe is a real winner... just read some of 175 comments on it! It's very easy, cheap (uses cocoa powder instead of expensive chocolate bars), doesn't need a frosting, moist, and lasts for several days. Try it and you'll love it! You can also bake it in pans other than bundt forms, I usually use a spring-form circulat cake plan, then pour the left-over batter into a loaf pan.
