{twd} cocoa buttermilk birthday cake

I'm late to the party. But look--I brought cake!

That sort of makes up for it, right? Last week was the second anniversary of Tuesdays with Dorie, and to celebrate, its members made this Cocoa Buttermilk Birthday Cake. I made it too, I just waited a few extra days so that in addition to celebrating with Dorie, I could also celebrate with a friend who had a birthday of her own a few days later.

But here's the bottom line: birthday or no birthday, make this cake soon. It's dense, chocolatey, and the malt powder laced icing is a cause for celebration in and of itself. I may or may not be eating the leftovers by the spoonful (spoiler alert: I definitely am).

This week's choice comes from Laurie of Slush, and you can find the recipe here.
