Review This Recipe
My favorite Chocolate Cake
I lost my Nestles Cookbook and went online to find this recipe. It is truely the best chocolate cake and very easy to make. It is worth the extra time to bake this cake from scratch than to make a chocolate cake from a mix. This cake is very moist and my family loves it. If you want a very moist & tender chocolate cake you have to try making this one.
