Semi-Skinny Buttermilk Chocolate Cake

on February 24, 2012

I had a big sweet tooth this afternoon so nothing better than baking a chocolate cake to satisfy it! I’ve been inviting my boys to join me in the kitchen since they are old enough to help significantly. They are learning the ropes & are proud of themselves. Needless to say I’m proud too 😉 So here it is, the finish product that transpired in our kitchen…
