Don’t you just love Facebook? This morning, someone posted something about eating chocolate cake for breakfast, and I had to remember making Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting, and promising my friend that I would make cake today.
Low and behold, when I went to my refrigerator, I found no milk, and didn’t feel like going out to get any. However, I had a large container of plain, yummy yogurt, and I knew that it would make a really rich cake.
Just a warning, make sure you use Baker’s Joy or some other means of getting your Bundt pan completely greased. This cake likes to stick, and when I make it in a regular cake pan, I always use parchment paper. Alas, you can’t use parchment paper in a Bundt pan, so just make sure you really spray the pan well with the Baker’s Joy.
