I've been blogging over at Our Sleeping Flowers these days. Still me, and still delicious, come join me!

I made this cake for Aarny's birthday. He likes chocolate cake, but ONLY if it's moist, almost like brownies. But not brownies, heaven forbid. :) It was delicious and likely a sin, if that's possible.
They tell you to make it in two rounds, but I made it in a 9x13 pan so I didn't use anywhere near the entire amount of frosting I made. It would have been smart to cut the recipe in half, as I have done for you. aren't I nice?
