This cake is simple, it’s chocolate-y, it’s fudgy, it is so incredibly moist and the frosting will make you wanna slap your Momma. Okay, not really, I’d have to smack ya if you ever thought about smacking your Momma. You get what I’m saying. My husband just adores this cake. If you’ve never tried this, I hope you’ll give it a whirl. I’m thinking you’ll be coming back for seconds!
