An easy to make perfectly delicious chocolate cake recipe sent by my friend. Very easy to prepare and soft and delicious. Fresh eggs must be used for cakes. When cakes are made first add the egg yolk and then the well beaten egg white. When egg yolk is used add a little grated lime rind 2 or 3 times so that the smell will be empowered.
