Chocolate Birthday Cake

Chocolate Birthday Cake

Let me start up by saying that for some CRAZY reason I didn't write this recipe down after I baked it, and I am sitting here a week later doing my best to recall it. I should really rebake it and see but then I won't be able to post it today and that would just suck. So please send me updates if you try it so we can see if I guessed correctly.

Secondly, while this a healthier version of your standard store-bought chocolate cake, it is actually still really really satisfying. I think that this is because the use of real butter and cake flour means that it is actually CAKE. However, they have been used in quantities and in conjunction with other ingredients that makes for a much more macro balanced, satiating and wholesome cake.
