Chocolate Cake

Who can say no to chocolate cake?  I made this chocolate cake for my husband’s birthday last month and it was a hit. The secret ingredient that makes it so moist is yogurt. You can also replace yogurt with sour cream.

The frosting is really good ! I always make extra to add to each piece when serving.
