My friend Lela brought me this chocolate cake on her way to work. I'm feeling a cold coming on,but that didn't stop me from having a big slice of this cake and a glass of milk.And it's only 9:30 in the morning! Shame on me! Lela is a wonderful baker,she doesn't like to cook everyday,but loves to bake. She knew I'd want her recipe so she brought it too. Hope you enjoy this cake as much as I m,hoping there's some left for the hubs when he gets home.
Lela says instead of flouring the greased pans,use cocoa to "flour" or "cocoa the pans"
