Something sweet for the Sweet!

This cake is addictive!  I'm not a big fan of chocolate, but I do love this cake.  It is nice and moist, and only as sweet as you want it to be.  I don't always put the full amounts of sugar in it, and sometimes just use Ghiradelli's cocoa!  It came from the Partyline Cookbook by the Jackson Mountain Homemakers.  I make it when I am feeding a crew because what cowboy doesn't like cake? (That and it's super easy)!
