great cake for a fast and easy pot-luck

@Member 14885: Thanks for bringing this problem to our attention! We have updated the recipe and it should read more clearly now. Hope this helps! -- Editor of RecipeLion

THE INGREDIENTS, AREN'T CORRECT IN THIS RECIPE. IT SHOWS TWO CUPS OF FLOUR TWICE AND THE COCOA USED IN THE FROSTING SHOULD BE SEPERATED SHOWING CAKE BATTER AND FROSTING WHICH WOULD BE SIMPLIER TO UNDERSTAND. JUST A SUGGESTION TO MAKE IT EASIER TO UNDERSTAND. THANK YOU
