chocolate buttermilk cake


this is a great old-fashioned chocolate fudge cake--the cake to turn to for "chocolate cake occasions." this cake is moist, with a fine grain and excellent flavor. since both kids and adults love this cake, it's great for family gatherings or birthday parties. you could even go as far as to making a double chocolate cake by adding 1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate bits tossed with 1 tbsp. sifted flour mixture, and add to batter after adding melted chocolate. great any way you prepare it! (from the perfect cake by susan purdy)
