Chocolate Buttermilk Squares

A very simple recipe for a simple chocolate snack cake. My kids (and I!) love these straight out of the fridge with a cold glass of milk! Edited to add-some reviewers have found these dry--I'm not sure if keeping them in the fridge keeps them moist, but that may be the trick as I've never had that problem (mine always stay in the fridge).

    Very sorry to say, but we all thought these were just terrible. Dry, dense and probably could have used a couple of eggs in the batter. Will not make again. We even tried making them twice, just to make sure. Thumbs down both times. Followed the recipe exactly. Looked good, but...no thanks.

    I followed the instructions exactly but found the cake dense and dry. I will put icing on it and serve it with ice cream but I don't think I'll make it again.

    These were very good...not too sweet, but chocolaty and moist. Mine stayed in the refridgerator for about a week and were still moist.
