As a child my favorite Aunt Virginia was known for this fudge-like rich and moist devil's food. This makes a large cake and goes a long way. Very good frosted with cool whip and instant pudding mixture or any favorite type. Dusted with powdered sugar through a doily lace pattern then adding real whipped cream on top is also very popular. You will never buy a cake mix again after making this delicious cake.
