"Harkening back to the Depression Era of the 1930s, this easy-to-make chocolate cake is, well, amazingly chocolatey! With a couple of “secret” twists, every bite is sinfully rich – from the luscious and creamy sweetness of the homemade chocolate frosting to the moist and delicious cake – making this cake a chocolate-lovers dream. My grandmother’s recipe, this eggless chocolate cake is a family favorite, handed down to each successive generation because it’s the only chocolate cake requested for family get-togethers."
