“Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting” is sort of a family tradition. It was usually the cake of choice when our son Robert was asked what kind he wanted. Mom’s was always a cake mix, but I am a failure with cake mixes. This recipe however always works for me.
Growing up it wasn’t Sunday dinner without cake for dessert. There are several funny stories that go along with that as well. So that it wouldn’t get cut before dinner it was most often placed, frosted and usually sprinkled, in the upper cupboard second shelf on top of the mixing bowls. More that once the cupboard was opened and the cake fell out. Not always a total disaster and most of the time still edible.
After getting married and having children this was still tradition at my parents house. When we would visit Sunday evenings and there was always cake. Wasn’t it great that I married someone who adores cake?
