Chocolate Cake by Angie Dellos/The Greco Family “Cook”Book

Chocolate Cake

In 1998 my husband, Mike and myself had gone to the First Greco Family Picnic (they have it every 5 years).  Over the next few months, Diane Randesi (one of the children of the Greco clan) had put together a cookbook that everyone who attended the picnic (about 100 people or more) contributed recipes to the cookbook.


This recipe was requested by my niece, Gloria Greco.  I made this cake once a week for years when my children were growing up.  Maybe that’s why, to this day, they all have chocolate cravings!
