My Mom's Stand-By...
"Chocolate Dream Cake"
AKA "BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER"
I thought this recipe was a lost forever...but my sister found in some of Mom's things and passed it along to me. It was so worn and torn that I couldn't read it all.
I found a recipe today on Recipes.com that seems to be the same from what I can see.
This recipe comes from "Midwest Living" as well as the picture.
It is named, "Best Chocolate Cake Ever"
