This cake is for my Friend : Happy Birthday to Sumo and Advanced Happy Mothers day to all readers!


 Thanks to Betty crocker recipe! This devilish chocolate cake is super simple and sinfully yumm with a rich and creamy milk chocolate frosting from Betty crocker.  I never did frosting on my cakes before, the ready made frosting from Betty looks delicious and simple to give a try.


 Added one ripen banana to the cake flour and it turned out super soft and fluffy! not sure if I like my cake to be that soft! but the chocolate frosting made this cake to be in my 'W.A.N.T.E.D' list.


  
Topped it with pecans and white chocolate chips to make this more ...guilty!
Please let me know if you have any easy, no-messy frosting recipe, I would love to give a try.

This looks so delicious I could almost taste that chocolate already :-P Great choice adding a banana to the recipe cause that cake DOES look moist and oh so yummy. And then to top it off with white chocolate chips?! Are you trying to kill me with such deliciousness? Lol. Love white chocolate!

Looks deliciously moist and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate - how can you go wrong? For easy frosting I usually just use my kitchen aid and paddle the crap out of butter and after its pale and fluffy add a bit of vanilla extract and powdered sugar till I get the taste and consistency I want. Could always paddle in good melted chocolate (let cool a bit before adding to butter) for chocolate frosting. Throw paddle and bowl in dishwasher for easy cleanup!
