    Lil' Miss Nikki's Note:

    I found this recipe over on AllRecipes about a month ago and have to say it's the best chocolate cake I've ever had! So i had to bring it over here and share it. I haven't tried the frosting, as I had whip cream between the layers and a chocolate ganache frosting on top. Let me know how the frosting turns out!

      To me, this is one of the best chocolate cakes. It is the recipe my mother used. I found a handwritten copy stuck in one of her old cookbooks & was going to post the recipe. I am glad to see it here. My mom made it w' Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Ahh....fond memories....
