I followed some of the other suggestions to double the cocoa in the cake. But it still didn't seem like it was chocolatey enough. If I make it again, I will heat the buttermilk and add the cocoa to it, since sometimes the cakes are more chocolatey when the cocoa is "activated" first. The cake almost seemed a little bit dry and crumbly, but then again, I like my cakes a bit more dense and fudgy. I also didn't have 3 cake pans, so I divided the batter between 2 pans instead. I ended up having to bake them for 40-45 minutes. That also could have led to the cakes being more crumbly than desired. :) The frosting, on the other hand, was AMAZING! I think that I will make the frosting again for all my chocolate cakes!
