want to find Black Midnight Cake

Was just talking with brother and he told me of a cake our mother made called a Black Midnight cake. He thought the recipe was in a 1940s edition of the betty Crocker Cookbook she used a lot but he said the book was the size of a Standard Bible and had a dark green Cover.

Do any of you have a recipe from back then for this cake? If so please post or e-mail to me at lakeciykid270@aol.com
