RECIPE BACKSTORY
A friend of my sons (I have two of them) birthday is the 25th of December. When I asked him was kind of cake he'd like he said chocolate with chocolate frosting. This is what I came up with. I have a red velvet cake recipe I've used for years and adapted it to make it a chocolate cake. The red velvet is unusual because it contains no cocoa, so I added cocoa to this one to make it chocolate. The eggnog replaced the buttermilk in the cake.
