Chocolatecake

a few years ago my son wanted a chocolatecake for his birthday, so in the weeks ahead I tried several recipes, and this one was the winner :) I even make it for friends for birthdays, so I reckon that's a good sign. The recipe comes from a childrens cookbook and is easy to make. book: Alison Holst's Step by Step cooking for beginners of all ages.
