Why I Love This Recipe

A lady from church always made this for the dinners, and never was any left over. I ask her for the recipe, she told me it was her great great grand mothers's, an old pioneer woman. It has been up dated.

It’s moist beyond imagination, chocolatey and rich like no tomorrow, and 100% of the time, causes moans and groans from anyone who takes a bite.
