This is the exact recipe my mom always used when i was growing up. And is still my favorite chocolate cake ever! I just made it in the form of a full sheet cake for my Daughter's Birthday! Everyone raved! I did not know it had a name though, until a friend of mine said this is what it was called when she was growing up! so thanks for posting!
