This cake is best made a day ahead, which makes it a nice option if you’re crunched for time. It’s also pretty straightforward and doesn’t require any obscure ingredients. And it’s dang good.
No, this cake does not contain whisky. And it’s not a double-chocolate malt cake (as my brain thought it was when I first decided to make it). No, it’s a chocolate malt cake with malted vanilla buttercream frosting. And it’s freakin’ delicious.
