Will you look at this poor excuse for a cake? Looks like I sat on it.

You wouldn’t know how awesome this cake is until you tasted it yourself. And you wouldn’t taste all the ingredients that went into making this deliciously rich cake (like buttermilk), because all the ingredients work together in the background to compliment the most important ingredient (chocolate).
