Chocolate Jimmie Cake

One of my favorite desserts of all time is a family recipe my Grandma had been making since..well..forever. If you are wondering, jimmies are chocolate sprinkles which are mixed into this moist cake, giving it a hint of chocolate which pairs well with a light coffee flavor.

My Grandma was a great cook and I have to say of all the great recipes she made, this is probably in my top 3.

Enjoy it with a cup of coffee for breakfast or dessert.
