A good, solid, easy-to-put-together, and easy-to-bake snackin’ cake should be part of every home baker’s repertoire, and this is our go-to solution. It’s a springy chocolate cake with a slathering of fudgy frosting and my favorite part: It’s baked in a skillet, which gives the sides a fun crunch. This is the cake I make when I have a hankering for something less celebratory and more quick and dirty—the kind of cake I can throw together for an impromptu afternoon gathering. If I am toting the cake to a destination, I put the whole thing back in the skillet for ease in carrying.
