Grandma S’s Chocolate Cake

So a few weeks ago when I found my Grandma’s handwritten cookbook of recipes she either liked or wanted to try, I ran across this chocolate cake. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate, but at the same time your taste buds change every 7 years and I’m growing to like it more and more.  So jump forward a couple weeks and my other Grandma’s family reunion hit and we were looking for something to make to take and I saw that I had all the ingredients for this cake.  Therefore I wanted to make it!

Now one thing about it, she didn’t write down how much milk was actually needed.  It said to add milk but an amount wasn’t listed  I told hubby it said it was supposed to be a thin batter so he started measuring milk out until he got a consistency he was comfortable with, so we came up with 3/4 of a cup of milk.  Hey I thought this cake was to die for, so try it for yourself and let me know what you think :).
