Knightens Creamy Cocoa Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Chief Teer

This is one of my favorite cake recipe that my grandmother use to make quite often, and for most holiday events. I thought I would submit it before, the recipe is gone forever. It is a recipe that was developed and passed down by my family members back in 1948, during WWII. Hopefully, others will get their chocolate fix, too!

Hi, I tried to message you but you are not accepting messages. The list of ingredients doesn't include flour, but the instructions do - you might want to put the flour in the list of ingredients. Thanks!
