"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This chocolate cake is half way between tasting home made but also half way to being moist like a cake mix. That is why it is so great. When placing it in the cake pans it is quite liquid so do not be concerned.
