Easy chocolate cake

It’s always a good idea to have an easy and basic chocolate cake recipe in your back pocket. You just never know when you’ll need to bake one…
- last minute birthday with friends or at work
- dinner gathering
- picnic
- Weekend Special

The reasons are endless and sometimes you don’t even need a reason to bake a cake! The intoxicating smell of baked chocolaty goodness is good enough for me.
This cake is so light, sweet and pillows. Please add to your recipe box. It won’t disappoint!
