I love it when things are just straight-forward and delicious. What's more unpretentious than chocolate cake? I certainly can't think of anything else. It's the most homey and comforting dessert.
I think I was feeling a little under the weather when I made this cake. Because if you have a cold, eat some chocolate cake. I used a recipe I found here and the cake turned out moist and delicious. If you look at the recipe, it called for water. I replaced it with strong Indonesian coffee instead (Indonesian pride, woot woot!).
I also whipped up just a basic buttercream icing to go along with it. Sounds good, no?
