The two great things about this cake is how moist it is with out any added butter and how quickly the recipe comes along. With the holiday season around this Chocolate cake is a perfect way to entertain friends and family.

The first time I made this I had three taste testers. My 2 kids and my daughter’s friend.  When I gave them a piece, the kids  almost immediately gobbled up there cake and asked for seconds. If the kid has to ask for seconds, it’s got to be good. I just smiled and we all sat together to indulge the cake.
