I named this after my husband because this is my husband's favorite chocolate dessert. He always lends a hand to help make it, which makes the task easier. It does take a few minutes to put all the ingredients together, but well worth the time! My mom always made great cakes by following the directions as posted in this recipe. Spend the extra time mixing the ingredients and use room temp butter, milk, eggs, etc. for the best cakes.
