This makes a very good moist chocolate cake. I have made cupcakes with it, doughnuts and cake. I do not think it would work well in a shaped pan. I left it in a sheet pan for one serving and the other time I made it I used a springform pan and left it on the circular bottom.

I would bake for 30-35 minutes or until it tests done.

I would grease the pan, but based on the author's comments, it doesn't sound like she was concerned about being able to remove the cake from the pan.

You can use whatever frosting you like or just dust with powdered sugar.
