This is a recipe I got from True Story magazine years and years ago. I forgot I had this, but it's in my favorites file so I know I thought it was really good at one time (or I wouldn't have bothered to write it out). Hope you enjoy it!

A delightful moist, snack cake. This one will need no more than a powdered sugar dusting to finish the top. I prepared exactly as directed by our own Cindy Lynn. Very nice cake, Cindy!

The cake was nice and mosit but I didn't like the taste. You could taste the unsweetened chocolate. I don't like an over sweet cake but this one wasn't sweet at all.
