This Chocolate Cake Just Might Bring Tears to Your Eyes

April 27, 2012

Yep, it’s that good.

I made this cake a month ago for my husband’s half birthday, and I’m still thinking about it.  It was super moist and stayed that way for a whole week!  I also like this recipe because it doesn’t require any strange ingredients.  You should be able to make it with things you have in your pantry and fridge.  For cocoa powder, I like Rodelle Dutch Processed (you can buy a huge container of it at Costco).  Also, the recipe says the batter will be thin – well, they aren’t kidding!  I’ve had melted milkshakes that are thicker than this batter.  I was so worried it wasn’t going to turn out that I almost started making another cake as backup.  But, it totally worked and was delicious!  I used ganache for the middle and the outside (equal parts cream and 60% cacao chocolate chips).  When I saw that it had pooled at the bottom of the cake I wondered if I’d used too much ganache, but then I came to my senses – What?  Too much ganache?  There’s no such thing!  Enjoy!
