Buttermilk Chocolate Almond Cake

I strongly believe that life is just better with chocolate cake…

Even if you are having on of those hellish days that doesn’t even seem like it could be real; I firmly believe that a good chocolate cake has the power to turn even the worst of days around. Because at the end of the day, there really is nothing like slicing into a moist chocolate cake en-robed in silky, fudgey frosting.
