Chocolate Devil’s Food Cake

Chocolatey, fluffy and moist, this is the last chocolate cake recipe you’ll ever need.  Be sure to use Dutch cocoa powder, it’s far better than the pale stuff you normally find in grocery stores.  If you don’t have buttermilk you can stir 1 tbsp. lemon juice into 1 cup of milk and let sit for a few minutes.
