  2. I’ve had this same recipe for about a year now and it is THE best ever! I get requests for it all the time! My one son who doesn’t like chocolate cake loves this one! I don’t waste my time with any other cake! By mistake, I left out the baking soda once and it ended up to be the best, gooey brownies ever! Glad you posted it for everyone to enjoy! Add bonus: it is SOOO easy! 🙂

      That one is really good. Very similar to another one we use to bake. The other cake has coffee instead of boiling water and milk instead of buttermilk. We got to where the coffee with the chocolate was keeping us up at night, no matter when we ate it, so I switched to this one. It is a nice, moist cake.

      Have a great day.
