Best Chocolate Cake EVER!!

I finally found the perfect chocolate cake recipe. This picture here doesn't give it justice, because I made with the 'Hot chocolate buttercream icing' that came with the cake recipe.

But the cake was just heavenly, both rich and light, incredibly moist, and with the strong cocoa/chocolate taste I was looking for. A big thank you to Megan (whatmegansmaking blog) for sharing this beauty with the world.
