My mother used to make a simple peanut better frosting for this cake when taking it to church suppers or family picnics. My husband's favorite way to eat it is warm from the oven with a glass of milk.—Wanita Ann Aldrich, Hinsdale, New York

"This cake has been a favorite in our family, since the 50's. But with a few changes-- We use cake flour, 4 T. cocoa and 1 t. baking powder. We have never noticed a baking soda taste. It's just a chocolate wonder!"
