    peppermintkitty's Note:

    This cake is very rich and not for fat conscience people. It's wonderful to serve with your favorite home made ice cream. I make this only as a once in awhile special dessert. I copied this recipe from a newspaper a very long time ago and found it in the newspaper again just the other day! Guess time has only made this cake better. You want to make sure you don't over bake as the cake is intended to be very moist and fudgy.

      This is similar to what we have been calling a Texas Cake for years. It is super rich, chocolate and my kids favorite.
