Chocolate Pick Me Up

 Court has had a rough week and has been a bit under the weather. To keep his mind off of things (and to satisfy my never ending chocolate cravings) I made him this cake. He requested it a couple of weeks ago but my personal private sewing lessons have taken priority. 

Sorry Court!

I think this is the first time EVER that I've made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting...I usually stick with white buttercream but Grace talked me into it. 

And while the recipe said for it to bake 30-35 minutes, I pulled it out after being in the oven 22 minutes and it is still a bit too dry for my liking. Nothing makes me angrier than dry cake!
But there is no way I'm throwing this baby least not yet!

As for the recipe, I would share it but 1) I don't think I'll make it again, 2) you aren't missing anything special (there are better chocolate cake recipes in the world) and 3) I am too lazy to type it all out. After a quick search at the BH&G website, they don't have the recipe online. It's only in the red and white BH&G cookbook circa 1996. See? It's not even on their website. 
How good could it be? 
Wish I had known that BEFORE I spent three hours making it!
