Scrumptious Chocolate Spice Cake

  It's hard to express words that define this cake, but we'll give it a shot! Well first, who doesn't love chocolate ginger cake, it's rich, dense, and heavenly! And the best part...IT'S SO SIMPLE! Our mom used to make this recipe all the time, and when we found the recipe hiding in our cookbook, we knew we had to make it right away! We love how this cake mixes spicy with sweet, it is just so full of flavour and it makes your mouth water! When we took the pan out of the oven we kept going back every 5 seconds to see if we could cut into it! So here friends, is the most tasty ginger cake recipe you will ever find!
