I needed a simple chocolate cake recipe for a Wilton cake class and came across an older recipe which I adapted to suit my need for a not too dense, moist, high chocolate cake. The cake was dense enough to handle a buttercream frosting and decorations learned in class that day without being too heavy. All at home agreed it was the best chocolate cake I had ever made. I made a batch of Wilton Chocolate Buttercream frosting to fill and frost the two layers and there was just enough to go around. I always say simple tastes best.
