Grandma's Chocolate Cake
55 mins (prep 15, cooking 40)
10 ingredients
16 servings
This recipe is from my Grandma, who go it from her mother. I don't know the history before that. Everyone just loves this cake, and when I asked Grandma about it, she said she didn't think it was anything special, just made with ingredients they were likely to have on the farm. Note: to make sour milk, add 1T vinegar or lemon juice to sweet milk. I make this as a very tall 9 x 13, 3 small layers or a whole bunch of cupcakes.
