Mom’s Decadent Chocolate Cake

Who doesn’t love chocolate cake?  It has gotten me through some very tough kid induced mental/emotional breakdowns.  I always say the richer & more chocolate the better.  This cake is definitely  a rich chocolate flavor.  Perfect for hiding in the bathroom (while tiny fingers wiggle under the door) & drowning your sorrows.  It might even give you the strength to make it through another day!
