:licklips: If you add more cocoa it's a dark chocolate cake.
You can also use orange extract in place of the vanilla.

This is my family's favorite cake! It's so easy to make fancy with frosting and Ghiradelli Chocolate candy squares.

We made this a lot when I was growing up. It's wonderfully moist.

This looks fantastic- I have a friend with egg/dairy allergies and never know what to make when she comes over. I am definitely going to try this!

My aunt made this whenever we would visit as children. We always loved it because we got huge pieces! Thanks for the trip down memory lane and the recipe.

I like to top this with a topping of cinnamon/sugar before baking instead of using frosting. The sugar gets crunchy and makes a nice contrast to the moist cake.
