"A special friend gave me this recipe more than 20 years ago," recalls Annette Foster of Taylors, SOuth Carolina. "The cake has a light cocoa flavor, and the frosting is rich. Because you frost and serve just half the cake, you can use the remainder to make other scrumptious desserts later in the week."
This homey recipe combines two of my favorite things: hot, crusty biscuits and a flavorful lemon-pepper sauce. I've taken it to potlucks and given it as gifts with potatoes and carrots baked in. —Pattie Ishee, Stringer, Mississippi
