I printed it off to try too. Kathyg...did you frost your cake and if so, how did you make your frosting and was it chocolate too? I want a really good chocolate frosting recipe, a dark chocolate one.

Really no need for frosting, my opinion only

No, I did not frost. If I did it would be a cream cheese frosting.

I did have some mini semi chocolate chips in the cupboard, so I sprinkled a few of those on. No frosting necessary.

The recipe looks great, and I was wondering about frosting as well since I don't usually go that route. So happy to see no frosting necessary. (and I love that it has "normal" ingredients! the only thing I don't usually have on hand is sour cream but no biggy. I have used yogurt and even cottage cheese in its place for some recipes but I think for this one, sour cream will be used). Thanks for posting this!

Glenda, please refresh my memory. Did you create this recipe . If I remember correctly, you were a home economist. Please give us the history on my addiction. It is the easiest and best cake ever. Before pandemic, we had church dinners once a month, I was told once a month, don’t forget Miss Glenda’s cake.
