Mom's Chocolate Cake

Well, chocolate cake is not really very Italian either, but Mom certainly had a claim to Italian. You are more likely to get less intense chocolate flavorings in Italy. There are a number of cakes there as well, but they tend to have different textures and often have little flour. Flour is often replaced by ground nuts, crumbs or a number of other things.
