3/09 My ex step Grandmother gave me this recipe about 30 yrs ago. It's moist, chocolatey and mmmmmm GOOD!! 7/09 I made THIS EXACT Recipe and the cake came out dry and overdone. Went back to my ex step Grandma's recipe to see it IS different: less flour and 1 C boiling water and not baking soda, baking powder.. hers came out killer: moist rich and perfect.. sorry.
I had lost my recipe. But here it is! The best, easiest, moistest chocolate cake ever! Thank you for posting it on here! Most people think I'm crazy when I tell them what's in it, but they always love it!
This was the cake my sister ALWAYS requested for her birthday when we were growing up. A yummy, tried & true, chocolate cake.
