Mom’s Chocolate Cake and Icing….

Had a request for mom’s chocolate cake, so will share with all.  I went through every little scribbled piece of paper in her box.  The cake I found says, “Black Magic Cake” and the icing is the chocolate fudge one.  They are written in her handwriting, the most personable thing I now have of her.  I plan to leave lots of handwriting behind…

Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.
