Being Valentine's Day weekend, I was in the mood for some chocolate. This cake is moist, soft and easy to make. The frosting on top is super chocolatey and even easier to make than the cake! This cake perfectly satisfied my chocolate cravings!

Recipe (cake recipe adapted from Diethood)
For the Cake:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons buttermilk powder
1 cup water
1 cup strong coffee
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Grease rectangular casserole dish. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Whisk in wet ingredients until the batter is smooth. Pour into greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.
For the Frosting:
3 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
3/4 cup half and half
In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips in 20 second increments, stirring after each time. When completely melted, whisk in half and half. When all the chocolate is completely incorporated into the half and half, place frosting in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour to allow it to set up. If frosting gets too firm, let the frosting sit on the counter until smooth enough to spread on the cooled cake.
