Betsy's Best Chocolate Cake

What do I do when I promise my grandson I'll bake him a big chocolate cake......Pillsbury just didn't seem to be the answer to this promise!
I seem to remember sweet and talented Betsy of My Five Men sharing her best chocolate cake recipe.....If five men say it is good, it must be.
So I got out the kitchen aid and gave it a try.
A couple of hours later (yes, I'm slow and make a mess)
this beauty was ready to be delivered.

I hesitate to serve anything without trying it (that's my excuse for cutting into his cake)ha.....so this morning I had a small piece with coffee.

If you notice on Betsy's comments on the cake recipe post....mine said, "I'm not a fan of chocolate but it looks good".....WRONG.....I love this cake and I want it all for me!!!! Can you just see the moistness? Oh my!



Jackson, I hope you enjoy your cake and pay no attention to the tears on the cake cover!

Have a good weekend all and GO HOGS!!

I have made Besty's chocolate cake. It has become my favorite. I am a chocolate lover. Today I made your pepper sauce. I planted mustard greens last week. I can hardly wait to try it on them!
