Thanks for recipe. It brought back so many good memories of my grandmother. She made a one egg cake & a chocolate sauce that you poured over your slice of cake. Yum!!!

My mother made this and I have always wanted the recipe. She made it for many things, including strawberry shortcake. Thank you.

Oh my!! Just pulled this out of my oven and it looks WONDERFUL!!! I had tasted the batter and it was great so I know the flavor is going to be delicious!! I am going to use Hershey's Cocoa frosting with a bit of mascrapone. Thank you for this go to recipe!!! It is so easy going, can do anything with it. I envision it layered with fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream frosting!!!
