Iris's Chocolate Wacky Cake

I don't know who Iris was, but the recipe was given to me several decades ago with this title. It is very easy and fast to make. It tastes like it is much richer than it really is. I don't bother to ice the cake. A sprinkle of confectioners sugar looks nice and is sweet enough. You won't miss the egg.
