Best Ever Black Magic Cake by Lisa Glass

Jean Romero


This cake recipe belongs to Lisa Glass and by no means am I trying to take credit to this wonderful cake, just changed the frosting. This is the best chocolate cake I've made in a long time, have made four here in Lewiston, Id and one in Utah. Today is one of our granddaughter's birthday and so we made a cake to celebrate even though she lives in Gooding Idaho, we made a cake for her LOL
I didn't make the frosting that was in Lisa recipe, its a little too sweet for my husband so I made a cream cheese frosting and just put it on the top of the cake, also I used a bundt cake pan.
