Man o man! This cake!
Over Christmas we were at the lake visiting family and my grandmother brought a chocolate cake that I could not get enough of! It's what I call an old church lady recipe that is nothing fancy but oh-so-good. Tasting it will probably remind you of your childhood... I have had it before but it was a long time ago.
Many times I can resist dessert, but this cake is WORTH it! It is so good that I kind of moan a little while taking bites :) That good. I think it's the not too thick cake layer which is soft and moist, plus the old-fashioned chocolate kind of granulated "fudgy"icing. It also meets my criteria of EASY and fast to prepare.
Since Christmas, I have made it almost every weekend for small dinner parties and everyone has asked for the recipe.
My grandmother made it in a 9x13 pan but I like using my round springform pan because it looks a little more festive. Here, I made it for a little dinner we had to celebrate Adam's birthday. Not a great picture of Adam
