Chocolate Crazy Cake (Dairy-Free, Egg-Free)

Dairy-free chocolate cake

I love cake. But who doesn’t? I love me some chocolate cake too. However, I just had a baby and she doesn’t tolerate dairy very well in my breast milk, so I have gone dairy-free.

(It’s special to give them too. I get really excited about giving hostess gifts!)
