Do you love chocolate ?
Oh how we love chocolate here at Sweet Magnolias Farm ... I think we would pass on diamonds for a good piece of chocolate.
A few weeks back ..Abbey and I wanted something yummy, chocolate and homemade ..she decided to try a vintage recipe from her "Betty Crockers" Picture Cook Book ...and boy did she ever hit a "Home Run."
Yesterday she made it for a second time and I don't know how she could improve on the first time ..but she did ...I was singing "I'm in heaven" the whole way through eating it ...
Below are some pictures of it ...to enjoy ...and following the recipe so you can make and enjoy it for yourself.

If you love Chocolate ...I promise you'll love this cake ...and what makes it better is it's homemade ..this cake has such a wonderful consistency ..not anything like the boxed cakes that come out spongy ..this is so light and fluffy and just "Heavenly" !!!
