Homemade Chocolate Snack Cake Recipe

Homemade Chocolate Snack Cake Recipe

THIS is a moist delicious snack cake, so good that icing is not necessary. Sometimes my husband puts a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Either way, it always satisfies our sweet tooth. -Debi Peschka, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
