The title is so true! This really is the best cake ever! I was looking for a birthday cake to decorate and this one was perfect. It was so easy to make and it was absolutely delicious -- moist yet fluffy and oh so chocolatey. And it held up well with all kinds of decorating. Trust me, after making this cake, you won't ever go back to any other recipe.
This was the first cake my Mom taught me to bake. We called it Crazy Cake and would pour the wet ingredients into wells we made in the dry ingredients. The cake always came out very moist and everyone loved it!! It won me first prize in a county fair when I was in grade school! We used a boiled white frosting made with flour, milk, sugar and crisco.
