Must eat cake

Cheering myself up with something yummy.

I was supposed to make the ever healthy zucchini bread - I even got a load of zucchini!

But, somehow it turned into this...



If the numerous taste tests are any indication, this should be yummy. This is indeed a homemade chocolate cake with homemade chocolate buttermilk frosting. And you can't even tell that half of one layer is missing. Now I just have to keep myself (and the kids) from eating it before dinner.

This looks so yummy. Maybe you served some zucchini with dinner.

It was such a fabulous cake. I used dark chocolate cocoa powder which made it extra good and the frosting was so simple!

Buttermilk Chocolate Frosting
1/4 c. butter
3 T buttermilk
3 T cocoa

Cook to boiling, remove from heat and then add 2 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 1/2 t vanilla. Voila!

Nobody asked but... I am just such a giver.
