Double-Choc Delight Cake

“This is my husband's favourite chocolate cake. It's a quick and easy one bowl mix. No electric mixer needed. The recipe originally came to me back in the late 1980's via the fax machine when I was working a little country newspaper. It was promotional material by White Wings. Best thing that ever came through on that fax machine. ;o)”
