Today is my AMAZING husby's birthday! We celebrated early yesterday on his birthday eve since today is a workday. Husby requested a "light and fluffy chocolate devil's food cake with chocolate chips" for his birthday. After perusing Pinterest (and finding a cake that did fit the bill over on Kevin and Amanda), I eventually found the exact cake he was describing (from his childhood) in a recipe binder that belonged to his mom!
The cake is actually a bundt cake - we have just a normal bundt cake pan, but I think something modern like this one would be awesome to use! The cake itself was super simple and super easy to make (the recipe utilizes a box mix, score!).
It didn't call for a frosting, but I ended up making the chocolate buttercream recipe found on the back of the Ghirardelli Chocolate Unsweetened Cocoa Pouch. The frosting is seriously to die for and we always have the ingredients on hand.
The chocolate buttercream frosting totally put the cake over the top, and made it ultra decadent (I think it would be fantastic with just some powdered sugar sprinkled on top as a frosting alternative). Either way, make this cake! You won't be sorry.
