This recipe came from a friend of my grandmother's. It does not have eggs in it so it is a wonderful recipe for those allergic to eggs. It is the best and the moistest chocolate cake I have ever had - very rich and fudge like. It is requested wherever I go.

This review is for the cake only...for the frosting I used Top Secret Peanut Butter Frosting ...I love the peanut/chocolate combination. If you are looking for a fluffy, dark chocolate cake, this one is not for you. It is quite dense (especially after being refrigerated), and the chocolate flavour is mild, but very good. I needed a recipe that did not contain eggs, and am very pleased that I chose this one.
