Old Fashioned Chocolate Buttermilk Cake


How To Make Chocolate Buttermilk Cake?

“I call this Chocolate Cake “Old Fashioned” because it has a very soft and moist crumb that is reminiscent of a box-mix cake.
I made this for friends and one asked for the recipe immediately, because it was just like something her grandmother used to make, so I knew I would hit AFTER MANY ATTEMPTS on the correct chocolate cake recipe. Because showing someone you care about is not just about fancy frippery and gimmicks, it’s about good old-fashioned love and kindness, and that cake just screams that out.
