Barbra Streisand's favorite chocolate cake. Growing up in Brooklyn, a local bakery used to make this. Not sure if it's the same one, but I have never come across another recipe for Blackout cake, so if this isn't it, it must be awfully close! A great, sinfully rich cake! Prep time includes chilling time
