When a recipe calls for dusting the pan with flour and the batter is chocolate, I “flour” with baking cocoa instead. The cocoa enhances the chocolate flavor and eliminates the white flour dust! —Sarah H., Conroe, Texas
Meet the Cook: I wish I knew who to thank for the idea for my cake. I first saw it on the dessert table at a picnic. Later, for something different, I did my own variation.

I won grand champion honors in a potato festival baking contest with this moist chocolate cake. The icing recipe can be doubled for real sweet tooths. A great-grandma, I've spent over 85 years on the farm.
