Notes

This cake is the cake everyone asks for, whether it's for a birthday, an anniversary, valentines, or just a Monday! Coffee brings out the richness of the chocolate, and makes for an ultra-moist cake!

In the attached photo, we had a Wizard of Oz themed birthday for my daughter when she was 8: this is the birthday cake I made for her.

My family and friends LOVE this cake and I love making it. It's always a hit. I love that it's so moist and chocolately. Even my uncle who isn't into cake liked it. Well done!

This sounds very similar to my favorite chocolate cake, except I never used brown sugar. I am going to have to give this a try. Oh my gosh, what a great theme for the birthday party! I loved the yellow brick road on the tablecloth and of course you did an awesome job on that cake.

A dash of local for every season
