I’ve been on a heart shape kick and thought baking the muffins as cake and cutting them out would be kind of […]

Three Layer Chocolate Cake

It’s been a while since I posted a chocolate layer cake, but I promise you this recipe will make up for lost time. It’s our new favorite. At first I wasn’t sure this cake would be worth the time given the array of ingredients (two kinds of flour, both chocolate and cocoa) and the fact […]
