"Original recipe from my grandmother Sallie Ayers Kelly. It is a depression-era or before recipe. One of the simplest cake recipes I have tried. Cool cake before frosting."

I really liked this cake. Easy to mix up and very tasty; I do like my cakes a lot more chocolate so I may have to use more cocoa next time.
