I made this over the weekend and had to bring it in to work to share. If I had it at home I would eat the whole thing to myself. I used the Ghiardelli cocoa powder which I think is a little richer than Hersheys but this one is a winner whichever brand of cocoa you use.

This is the second cake I tried by Memajo and it is wonderful. My family asked that i please make it again real soon. I tried one simular to this recipe before but the cake part was a little thick, but this one is just right, definitely a keeper.
