Fudgey Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake cures pretty much everything --- whether you've had a long day a work, or a long day with the kids....or both!  It's rich, creamy, moist and the espresso brings out the chocolate flavor even MORE.  And it's all topped off with the MOST divine fluffy buttercream frosting EVER.

This cake is riffed from one of my favorite dessert blog Sweet and Simple Kitchen.
