This recipe was given to me by my aunt, Nellie Van Ness. The original recipe was from Jessie Johnson of Chaumont, NY, dated 1893. This cake is spectular. The only change made to the original recipe is that the butter amount has been doubled. This is a VERY dense cake which goes well with a big glass of ice cold milk. Use a frosting and filling of your choice, or my Especially Dark Chocolate Frosting on this site.
