Preacher's Chocolate Cake

I don't know where my mother got this recipe from but it is a wonderful rich moist chocolate cake. Frost with Whipped Cream Frosting and it tastes just like Hostess Cup Cakes but oh so much better. Mom would make 2 layers - fill and frost sides with the Whipped Cream Frosting, then use regular chocolate frosting for the top. Milk anyone?
