I have been meaning to try Bettyq’s famous chocolate cake recipe for the past year. But somehow I just never got around to it. So the Teen took it upon herself to bake the cake last night and decorated it this morning for my birthday. Betty, it was DELICIOUS. Really nice and moist and chocolatey. Thank you so much again for sharing that recipe. The Teen had a pretty easy time with the recipe, and used chocolate milk instead of buttermilk. She used unsweetened chocolate because that’s what we had in the house. For those of you who wanted to try the recipe, it is in an old post, here (scroll down to the comments section to look for the recipe).
The teen decided to make her own icing for the cake, rather than use a chocolate icing, because she wanted to add color to the cake. It was really good. And a second cake was decorated with a Jackson Pollock style splattering of icing… :) Thank you Betty for the recipe. Thank you to the Teen and Mrs. MM for the fantastic cake!
