    WaterMelon's Note:

    Adapted from Baker's Dozen Cookbook (I made some minor changes). This recipe makes a wonderful and moist cake with a velvety and smooth texture. All in one bowl too! I fill the layers with Mean Chef's Mousseline Buttercream (flavored with coconut), then glaze with Chocolate Butter Glaze (Chocolate Butter Glaze). To die for!! (I made only half the recipe for a birthday cake, and it's plenty for 8 people)

      Fantastic cake! Moist, rich, and chocolatey with the perfect texture. Frosted with Mocha Buttercream Frosting. I am always careful baking chocolate cakes, they overbake so easily, but this one needed the full 35 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
