Mom's Dreamy Chocolate Cake

Dreamy is right! This is an old-fashioned chocolate cake recipe that's a must for chocolate lovers. Tender and moist, the chocolate cake has a hint of spice from the added cinnamon. It's not overly sweet so the pecan fudge frosting is the perfect touch and adds sweetness. Easy to make this cake doesn't require any special equipment. Everything is mixed by hand.
