I am a chocoholic and if you are a chocoholic you will love this cake. The first time I ever had it was as a child. My mom bought a birthday cake in the shape of a doll and the skirt was the cake. Somehow she got the recipe and I have had this cake for almost every birthday. And let me tell you, that is a lot of birthdays. It is also a delicious cake for any occasion.
I usually only bake it once a year. Do you want to know why? Because I eat every bit of it. This past birthday Michael had a piece but then it was all mine.
Isn’t this terrible? I can’t help myself because I am a chocoholic. The cake may make you one also. Oh the frosting. I love a little chocolate cake with my frosting.
This is a made from scratch recipe but it is easy as most of my recipes are. And it doesn’t make a big cake. I use the same cake pan my mother used but if you don’t have the pan it will fit into an 8 x 8 cake pan. I have also doubled the recipe for a layer cake and of course cupcakes.
Now the original recipe calls for Crisco. The past couple times I have made it I used coconut oil and it tastes just fine. Now try this recipe because if you are a chocoholic you will love this cake.
