My Mom used to make this cake all the time from memory when I was a little girl. I remember asking her where her recipe was and her reply was, "I don't have one...I just dreamed it up..." then she would give me a big smile and a kiss on the forehead. So I named and called it, 'MOM'S DREAMY CHOCOLATE CAKE'.
I found it written down in one of her cookbooks later on. She was a really good cook and was forever baking something sweet. This was one of my very favorites...Every time I bake it I think of her and remember those days. I am so glad I have this recipe. It's a wonderful cake.
