"It's a bit undercooked, maybe," he said.
I'd just taken it out of the oven, so quickly put it back in and baked it for another 15 minutes. It's still fudgy though, and I wonder what to do differently if I use this recipe again. I'd like to; it's tasty and doesn't require butter or sour cream. Reduce the amount of oil?

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake
(from the Lutheran Ladies cookbook Grandma gave me in 1983)
2 c white sugar, 2 eggs, 2/3 oil, 2 tsp soda
Beat the above for four min.
In separate bowl, combine:
2and2/3c flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 2/3c cocoa, 1 tsp baking soda
Add dry ingredients alternately with 2 cups boiling water. This may be mixed with electric mixer.
Turn batter into well-greased 8x11 pan. Bake at 325F for 30-40 minutes.
As soon as cake tests done, remove from oven. Stays fresh for many days.
