This cake is going to a wedding reception! A friend recently asked me for my chocolate cake recipe. She wants to serve it as one of the desserts at her daughter’s wedding. Another friend, years ago, shared the original recipe with me. I cut out some of the fat and changed some of the ingredients. You could make it healthier with whole wheat pastry flour. But, on the theory of eating good 80% of the time and 20% of the time making the best choices you can. I choose this cake recipe. And I hope you will enjoy it. It also is very, very easy to make.
