How did this wonderful disappearing chocolate cake come into my life? A few years ago my friend Susan asked me and my daughter Ariel to a charity luncheon and they handed out programs and in the back of the program there was recipes and this was one of them. I held on to this one because it sounded yummy and I just love chocolate cake and the frosting reminds me of my fudge recipe.
When I stared making it I noticed that the cake recipe seemed familiar; that was because it is the same cake recipe on the back of the Hersey's cocoa powder can; and I have made it before and loved it! But the frosting is the main reason I wanted to try this cake. and boy am I glad that I did!
Now if I can just keep it from disappearing!
