Family Recipe Friday: Mrs.Troyer's Chocolate Loaf Cake

Joseph and Elizabeth (Schrock) Troyer were my great-grandparents on my mother's side, through her father Elmer TroyerJoseph and Elizabeth had five children - William Franklin, Ella May, Jesse Edward (died as infant of 2 months), Elmer David, and Edith Magaline (aka Edie).  She was the third child of Yost and Martha (Plank) Schrock.

My mother had several of  "Mrs. Troyer's" recipes...all of these recipes were very simple, of course made from scratch, recipes.  Today I share with you her recipe for:
