I love chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream frosting. It has been my favorite dessert since I was a little girl. Every birthday and special occasion this is what I wanted for dessert. Though my tastes have expanded the last few years and I choose other cakes now will still return to a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for pure comfort.
My favorite chocolate cake is Wegman’s chocolate cakes in their bakery. This cake is very similar. The frosting isn’t the same (I need to work on that) but the cake is very close. I loved that my family made this for me because we are 300 miles from the closest Wegman’s. This cake reminds me of all the cakes I had growing up and is the recipe my family has used for 40 years. I think it came from the Hershey’s can or cookbook.
