This was sent to my email from "Light & Tasty" and is credited to LaDonna Reed of Oklahoma. She says "trying to eat lighter but still crave sweets, this moist, chocolate cake helps with that. The rich frosting, makes a decadent treat" Well sounds good and pretty simple to me though I haven't tried it yet. If you do then let me know.
