Emergency Cake - Mix in the Tin Chocolate Cake

I try to resist cake.  I try to limit my cake consumption, then I snap and have to have a piece of cake NOW!  I need an EMERGENCY cake.


Today was one of those days... I needed cake and quickly.  I've had this 'mix in the tin' recipe for a very long time.  


They say this recipe was developed during the War, when there were no eggs and butter was very limited. 


But it's a very modern sort of recipe, too, perfect for busy people who don't have lots of time to devote to baking cakes. 


The most difficult thing about making this cake was cleaning up afterwards. Could be I am just a messy cook.
