My mother adapted this family pleaser from a recipe for vanilla cake that was in a church cookbook. The cake is so flavorful, it wouldn't need frosting-but I always feel you can never have enough chocolate!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2010

This recipe didn't work out to well for me. There was way too much mix to fit into one 15 x 10 x 1 pan. Let's just say this turned into a huge mess! If you attempt to make this and also find out that there seems to be too much mix, I would reccomend using a regular 13 x 9. I'm interested to see how it turns out for other people!
