This is Robyn Long's recipe and photo from Facebook. Had this at a picnic recently and let me tell you, it was the most moist, delicious, fudgy chocolatey thing I have wrapped my lips around in a looong time!

I recently added 1/4 teaspoon of instant coffee to the cake batter and the frosting, and it really kicked up the chocolatey flavor.
