      OMG! What an awesome cake! I made this for hubby's birthday, and got rave reviews! I made double frosting, so I could cover the sides, and it was best served from the fridge. A truly awesome recipe, that will be my staple choccie cake recipe from now on!

      I'm not a chocolate fan, but this is my favorite chocolate cake recipe. I use 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar to make the icing instead of a cup, but otherwise the recipe is the same. This cake will convert a non-chocolate lover...

      A very simple and very easy recipe - living in the UK, buttermilk is difficult to come by so I substituted cream of tarter dissolved in semi-skimmed milk and icing sugar for powder sugar - worked very well!
