This delicious chocolate cake with nutty, fudgy icing has been featured in numerous cookbooks over the years. It’s actual origin is unknown. It has been lovingly, served at many of our agency potlucks and Teresa’s family celebrations. It works well as cupcakes, too. Great for a Super Bowl party or a Valentine’s celebration.
