When my mom passed away, one thing I made sure to keep was her set of Woman’s Day Cookbooks from the early 1970’s. They were a collection earned from a grocery store with Bluechip Stamps. Anyone remember those or am I the only old person here? Anyway, there are twenty-six books in all which means it took her twenty-six weeks to collect them!  They are in very rough condition and when I use them, I do so carefully!

The other day we were craving chocolate cake so I pulled out one of those cookbooks and found the most delicious Devil’s Food Cake recipe which I’m sharing with you today! Trust me, if you like chocolate cake, you won’t be disappointed! In fact, I think this is going to be my new go-to chocolate cake recipe! YUM!
