This first recipe is an old, old very authentic chocolate cake recipe given to me by an Amish woman in the Berne, Indiana community and I was going to post just that and then I got to thinking of all the other delicious, amazing chocolate cake recipes we’ve posted here, so I made a little collection below. Some of the instructions on this first one are a bit spare, but I tried my best to tease out as much specifics as possible.

2 tablespoons cocoa
