I am surprised that I did not find this recipe on JAP. It is a very popular cake in the Northeast and I do not know why Texas is in its name but if you love chocolate, this one is for you.

Don't let the list of ingredients or the directions scare you because it is really an easy cake to make and can be done up ahead.
