Papa John’s Favorite Chocolate Cake
In case you weren’t aware, January 27 is National Chocolate Cake Day. So in honor of that day, today’s installment of Gayle’s Recipe Corner includes TWO recipes that made up my grandfather’s favorite chocolate cake! My grandmother (Mama Jewell) made this for Papa John on most of his birthdays. It’s definitely old school baking and I know that a boxed cake mix is super convenient these days, but if you like to bake and want to try this, you won’t be disappointed!
But whatever you do, I hope you’ll plan to celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day next week!
(As a reminder, if you’re new here . . . my mother (Gayle) wrote/compiled a recipe book when I was young and gave me my very own copy of it for my 19th birthday when I moved out of the house and into my own apartment. She had gone page by page and written notes to me like “Very good”, “Easy”, “Your Dad’s favorite”, etc. Now that she’s been gone 24 years, those notes are priceless to me. It’s so nice to open a book and hear her voice through her writing. I’m thankful.)
