Recipe by Tarynne

This is the Chocolatiest Fudgiest cake I have ever had. This is a recipe I got from my sister. I have made it a few times in the past. I am glad to have it again.

This cake is wonderful. It is so rich though I can't imagine it with icing. We always topped it with a whipped topping (cool whip). That seemed to calm down the richness. I'm so glad I found this recipe. I lost my recipe box and thought this one was lost forever. I am looking for another recipe I lost called Chocolate Chip Cake. It is a man's cake as it is a very moist cake that also does not require icing. It is made with dates, soda, no sour cream, pecans, cocoa, and of course flour and vanilla; can't remember the rest or amounts. I got this recipe from my aunt a long time ago, but she doesn't remember it. I have also put it in several school recipe books in Springfield, Mo. when my 23 yr old son was in grade school. If anyone can help me find this recipe I will be forever grateful. Thanks, Marilyng
