the best chocolate cake ever

chocolate cake

Here is a recipe for the best chocolate cake I have ever come across and I love chocolate so I have made/eaten a lot in my day! If you have a few free hours this weekend I highly recommend this cake. Although, this cake is time-consuming to make so I usually split it up over two days, making the cake first and the frosting the next day, that way I am not rushed to make it and it turns out just right.
