Personal Notes:
Vinnie Warner was David Warner's paternal grandmother. Blanche always said she was an excellent baker. We found this recipe in Blanche's papers. I've made this cake twice - using a 9x13 pan and a bundt pan. The cake is delicious, with a rich chocolate flavor and a moist texture. I made a buttercream frosting which enhanced the flavor and texture.
