Deep Dark Chocolate Cake Recipe

This chocolate cake recipe is a great dark chocolate recipe that is moist and fluffy. Perfect for use as a decorated birthday cake.

This recipe was in my family cookbook without any notes. My sister Suz thinks it’s one of her recipes as she remembers making a cake with hot water. But, the origin? We aren’t quite certain.

But, it doesn’t matter where this recipe came from as it is a winner. It was so good that I broke my diet for it… and I gained 4 pounds! Ack! Back on the wagon trying to be good. But honestly, it was worth it! YUMMY!
