Is this the sort of thing you mean by a Chocolate 'Slab' Cake?

I make this once a week makes a small rosat pan size cake

3.5 c flour
3.5 c sugar
3 t/s Baking powder
1.5 c cocoa
1 cup oil
2 cups milk
3 t/s baking soda
1 t/s salt
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups of boiling water (added at end)

Put all ingredients (except for the water) in a large bowl mix well to a batter. add boiling water and mix till smooth bake in the over at 160 for 1hr. you can split the mix and make two smaller cakes or make 1 smaller cake and put the rest into muffin tins the choice is completely up to you. this is an excellent cake if you have a large family or just want to impress people. gets moister by the day so stays nice and fresh very simular to mud cake.

I suppose one can call a Chocolate Cake in a Roasting Pan a Slab Cake, a great cake for a big Family and I have seen some great recipes, Thanks.

What I was looking for , was a cake made in a a Sandwich Tin size, sort of thing, I imagine, just sort the measurements, I suppose!
Thanks All.
