Nana Lila's Chocolate Cake

I love the rain. It always makes me think about feeling warm and cozy, sitting by the fire, and about the wonderful smells wafting from the kitchen. When I was 10 years old my grandmother (Nana Lila) taught me how to bake this cake. I have been making it for over four decades now, and have perfected the recipe. Add a cold glass of milk or some freshly brewed coffee and you'll feel like you're in your own grandmother's kitchen.
