Obviously this post is going out mid-week & not on a Monday, but I did make the cake Monday. So I had the Monday blues & with preggo cravings decided I NEEDED Chocolate Cake!!
I looked into some recipes based on what we had available in the house. I decided to go with this recipe http://southernfood.about.com/od/chocolatecakes/r/bl30623p.htm?p=1
and for the frosting http://southernfood.about.com/od/icingrecipes/r/Creamy-Butter-Frosting-Recipe.htm
The cake turned out amazing, super moist & like a real, old fashioned chocolate cake. The frosting is delish but the recipe advises to add tablespoons of milk or light cream to adjust the spread & consistency. Well, I think I could've done without this because the frosting turned out runnier than I would have liked. Still all in all it was yummy. I would recomend both recipes!
I am unsure of whether this will turn into a regular thing. I mentioned on Facebook, I may do a different chocolate cake every Monday for a year but am teetering because that can get overly dangerous! Hahaha!!!
Give it a try...Happy Baking!
