Mississippi Mud Cake

Looking through my grandmother’s recipe box I came across this recipe. I remember having this as one of the many desserts she use to have for each visit. My grandmother would always ask each grandkid, there were 5 of us what we wanted for dessert next time we visited. I think I always asked for apple pie or chocolate pie. Then someone would ask for this or something else so you can imagine how many desserts there where. I do miss going to the country to visit her and all the wonderful meals.

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
½ cup Cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup melted butter
1 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

2. Combine eggs and sugar and beat until creamy.
3. Add melted butter, flour, cocoa, vanilla and nuts. Mix well.
