Today’s post will bring happiness to all my beautiful sisters. Buttermilk Chocolate Cake, it’s so moist and light you just won’t believe it. 110 calories per slice, isn’t this a gift on its own?
What I like about this cake is that you can have it as is with a glass of milk, but you can also convert it to a birthday cake with chocolate frosting.
This cake can be stored in the fridge, and If you want to indulge, then warm up a slice and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, Hmmmm, maybe with some chocolate sauce. (I’m being naughty here but it tastes amazing.)
My family love this cake and don’t bother to add frosting or cream.
Chocolate needs some romance, don’t you think?
I had a slice of Buttermilk Chocolate Cake while reading High Tide for Maureen A.Miller, and I’ve enjoyed every bite, I mean every chapter 🙂
Maureen is an amazing author, it was a pleasure reading one of her exceptional creations. In High Tide She made the two main characters meet at the beach, I was hooked exactly from there. The characters were strong and felt so real. Maureen’s description makes you actually see everything as if watching a movie on TV.
High Tide is not only about romance, it has suspense and more going on. Please get this book if you are in romance and suspense, you will enjoy it for sure.

Buy High Tide.
