I got this recipe from an old book which belonged to my grandmother. She was the best in baking cakes, I would say! I loved her chocolate cakes with those chocolate fudge frostings....This is one of a cake which is very quick and requires only the basics. This is great after a family dinner just whenever you need! Enjoy!
