Grandma B's Chocolate Dream Cake

Michaela Boers


My Grandma Bessie use to make this cake for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners, or on Sundays when the family would come over. I remember watching her make it a lot and am blessed she gave me the recipe before she passed in 2007. She sure is missed!
