Got this from a synagogue newsletter over 30 years ago. Have been making it ever since. Once people try it, they beg me for the recipe.

I am editing my review as the first time I made this it was very good but a bit dry so I thought what would change that and I thought I'd decrease the flour. So I made it a second time ( and a third, fourth, and soon to be a fifth time) but now it was absolutely moist and delicious!! The only changes I made was to cut the flour back to 3 1/2 cups and I only used one tsp. of coffee. Now this is a fudgy chocolate cake to rave about! If you want to change your recipe accordingly just let me know and I'll write another fabulous review since I now love this cake!
