Closest Thing to Real Chocolate Cake

Contributed by: Syren4444Added: Oct 13, 2009 at 11:27 AM


I tinkered with this recipe until I found a gooey, soft, chocolate cake that really holds up as the real thing! Adapted from Solitude1972's recipe. Double the recipe for a two layer cake and bake in two pans!
