Sue B's Chocolate Cake

"I adopted this recipe. I had prepared it for a holiday function prior to the adoption. The comments from my original review stated, "This dense, rich chocolate cake is intensely moist. It baked perfectly and made a lovely layer cake. I will be using this recipe again for chocolate cake needs." The cake in my photo has Recipe #44126, between the layers, and is frosted with Recipe #31809 before being covered with my Recipe #105466. It was a huge hit, and I have made this cake many, many times since."

    This is the first cake I have ever baked from scratch, and it was marvelous! I cut the recipe in half to have a smaller, 3-person 2-layer cake that was more manageable. I also substituted 2% milk with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar for the buttermilk. The end result was a dense, moist cake that wasn't too sweet and also wasn't too chocolate-y for me (but I'm not a huge chocolate fan). With chocolate icing, raspberry jam between the two layers, and raspberries on top, it was literally the perfect cake. I will make this again.
