Thrown-Together Chocolate Cake

I got this recipe from an old lady who lived across the street from me in a suburb of Johannesburg. All my down-home cake recipes flopped at that altitude (6,000 ft), until she gave me this one. She'd lived there all her life. It's definitely not fancy, but whether at lower or higher altitudes, it's always worked for me -- and it's literally thrown together. I'm writing it down as she gave it to me.
