If you like chocolate.  I mean really like chocolate this is a decatant dark chocolate cake that is always moist and never has left overs.  Trust me. The recipe came from the famous Chocolate factory Ann AKA Grandma Ann.  My husbands mother was a certified chocolatier that had trained in Belgium to make those fabulous treats you see in candy stores.  she had a factory in the basement of the family home and was well known in the Northwest Coffee shops and foodie gift shops.  Ill never forget when I was recruited to help her and her elves in the factory to make a huge deadline with Harry and David.  We had to make 20,000 solid chocolate foil wrapped pears for the big holiday basket season.  That might be another story…for another time.  well-  here is her chocolate dump cake that is not only the family favorite but everybody that has ever tried it.  yes- its that good.  and Easy… and mouthwatering.
