This cake's one I prepare frequently for Sunday dinner. I also make it for church meetings and to take to friends who are sick. It goes a long way—unless you have some real "chocoholics"! I've been cooking as long as I've been married, for almost 30 years. My husband's the director of a Christian youth missionary organization, and our two children are 19 and 17.

You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea. My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!
