Ifin you have Chocolate, Cream Cheese and Bourbon, What do you get???? That's right you get my take on National Chocolate Cake day with "Chocolate Waffle Cake, with Cream Cheese Icing and Bourbon Caramel." Oh shut y'alls mouth you are getting drool on yourself, and your computers....LOL This is a cake recipe that's near and dear to my heart. My mom used to make this cake all the time. Its a old old fashion cake, its made with Mayo and no eggs or oil. Say what!!!! Yes! Its a keeper. My dad, uncle and all that ate it would ask for it all the time. So on this National Chocolate Cake Day I decided to give it a new up date. I hope you try it and fall head over heels in love. This recipe would also be great for game day, to wow your party guest.
