Recipe: Chocolate Cake with Cardamom Buttercream

This is probably the best chocolate cake I have ever made. I made these in to mini cake and the batter is so thin I didn’t think it would even bake but when it does it’s the perfect springy, moist chocolate cake with just the right amount of chocolate as to not be overwhelming. The buttercream is a delicious slightly sweet compliment to the velvety adultness of dark chocolate.
