This cake was easy and really yummy! I do a lot of "high end" baking normally. Genoise, etc. But this time I needed a quick cake and this fits the bill. Wonderfully moist and flavorful.
I'm typically not a fan of the texture of buttermilk cakes. But I had buttermilk that I needed to use up and I needed to make a cake for my in laws anniversary. The other thing that made me a little hesitant was the nutmeg. A lot of recipes add cinnamon to their chocolate cake and I don't care for it. This cake however, had good texture and great flavor! The only thing I would suggest is to check your cake. Mine was finished with more than five minutes left on the timer. I topped this with a chocolate fudge buttercream frosting. Yum!
My DH is a chocoholic so this recipe sounded right up his alley. While it was very easy to make, and it was moist and tasted ok, I didn't think it had much chocolate flavor. If I make again I will add more melted chocolate and see if that helps. Thanks for posting this Elaine.
