I'm posting this recipe as per DIANE HUGHES' request. Diane, let me know how this turns out for you if you make it. This recipe belongs to Joyce, which worked in an elementary school lunch room. I haven't made this cake myself but I've eaten hers and it is wonderful, however, I do plan on making it at some point.

This is the old-fashioned kind of cake that our grandmothers, great-grandmothers used to make. I'm posting this just as Joyce has written it out.

My favorite icing is used on Opel's Chocolate Stack Cake so go over to that recipe and check out that icing. It will definitely be enough icing for this 14-layer cake.

How to Make 14-Layer Chocolate Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. CAKE: Preheat oven to 400. Wax paper & grease cake pans. Mix first 5 ingredients together then stir in flour & combine well. Put 3 large tablespoons of batter in each cake pan and bake at 400 for approximately 10 minutes. Turn layers out and keep covered with dish towels.
  2. ICING: Melt chocolate with a few teaspoons of warm water until smooth. Mix the sugar with the cornstarch. Stir all ingredients together and bring to a boil. Boil for about 10 minutes on medium heat. This icing will be thin but will harden later. Spread between layers but poke holes (use a toothpick) in layers as you go to allow icing to seep into layers. Ice top & sides and keep spooning icing back on cake as it may puddle on bottom of cake plate.
  3. *Pleast refer to "Bea's Notes" above regarding the icing.
