Double Chocolate Love Cake Recipe

Last year, I convinced myself I could make a train cake for my son’s birthday. This year I wanted to go the easier route, so when he requested cupcakes, I mentally high-fived myself. I can do cupcakes! Unfortunately, the little guy got sick later that evening (unrelated to the cupcakes, I’m sure), and now he’s convinced that cupcakes and ice cream make him sick and wants nothing to do with either. (Why can’t that happen to me?) Anyway, I wish I had seen this cake recipe from Linwoods Health Foods for chocolate cake before his birthday because it looks delicious, has lots of chocolate and looks easy enough that I might be able to make it without totally messing it up. Plus, it has a secret healthy ingredient.
