My Mother's Mississippi Mud Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Dreamgoddess

There are many recipes here for this, but my mom's seems to be just a bit different. I had to post for her. I have made this often but I must confess I do not eat it because I don't like coconut (good diet dish -- for me at least -- to bring to pot luck) -- people who will eat coconut always rave about this.
