Recipe For Sim B’s Chocolate Cake

I have never baked a cake using yoghurt and so when I saw this recipe for Sim B’s Chocolate Cake, I decided to print it and add it to the list of ‘recipes to try’. The batter is very thick, but the cake comes out light and is very tasty. It needs icing, but as we were headed out, I did not have time to ice the cake, before tasting it.

  6. Yogurt and buttermilk are always great additions to chocolate cakes. They seem to add depth to the flavor and make the cake moist. Looks yummy.

    1. I have found the buttermilk makes the cake too dense for my liking 🙂
