One of my mom's friends gave her this recipe when I was a child and it has been a family favorite ever since. When your "chocolate sweet tooth" acts up, this really hits the spot!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2010

I made this cake last week, then made the yellow cake and am expecting special company this weekend and when I asked by friend what he wanted for cake, he asked for that special chocolate cake I had made before. This one! It is not too sweet yet has a definite light and enjoyable spicy taste. I will make it often and I recommend it to anyone.
