Chocolatetown Special Cake (Chocolate Cake)

Chocolatetown Special Cake (Chocolate Cake) created by Derf2440

Very rich because of the addition of buttermilk. I like to use Recipe #261024 for the icing. Or Recipe #95416 if I need to decorate the cake.

    I just wanted to share. I was about 8 years old and I made the chocolate town special cake. I remembered it called for buttermilk and I didn't have any, so I figured that half butter and half milk made buttermilk. It turned out to be such a good cake. I was so proud of myself.

    Nice moist cake and quite chocolatey!! I made it for Valentine's Day for DH, he loved it. I made white iceing for the sides and inside with coconut and put chocolate icing on top just cus he likes both. Turned out great I will make it again, thanks for posting Marg.
