Chocolate Cake

We celebrated my sister-n-laws birthday this past weekend by having her and my brother over along with their two kids for homemade pizzas and of course cake. Brook's favorite cake is chocolate with chocolate frosting, so after a quick search through my trusty file box (Phyllis's old recipes) I had the perfect recipe. My friends, I realize the last two recipes that I have posted have not exactly been good for you but who doesn't love some sweet treats every day now and then. I chose to bake my cake using a bundt pan but a regular sheet pan will work just as good.

Chocolate Cake

- 4 tablespoons of cocoa
