CHOCOLATE CHIFFON with Fluffy Vanilla Frosting

An OLD recipe from a church book I have worn out! I used to make this Chiffon Cake for a neighbor of mine who loved chocolate cakes.
It takes a little more effort and time than other cakes, but it is well worth it.
It makes a beautiful cake that tastes even better!

I frosted this cake with a Fluffy Vanilla Frosting, because that is they way Jim wanted it!
You can glaze this or use any frosting that you like. This Fluffy Vanilla is not a sweet frosting and is refreshing for the summer.

Note: The frosting recipe is from Jim's ex wife!
