Happy National Dessert Day! Let’s just agree that today is for amazing desserts with absolutely no guilt, because I have a delicious recipe for you for a chocolate buttermilk layer cake from Magnolia Bakery in NYC. You know the one – where Sex and the City’s Carrie would stop for her cupcake fix. There are probably a couple of locations now, but when I discovered it, it was tucked away in SoHo with a line that wrapped around the block sometimes, with people just wanting to try a cupcake. There was also an amazing used bookstore right next door, and Bond No. 9 had their flagship store nearby (which is how I discovered it the first time).
This chocolate buttermilk layer cake recipe works great for cupcakes too, and the frosting (icing? I don’t really know the difference, if there is one) is a delicious cream cheese. My husband had a birthday recently, and I used this recipe to make him these:
SO. GOOD. I can’t even tell you.
Enjoy National Dessert Day!
