I use a wonderful chocolate cake recipe. It’s firm, moist,and incredibly chocolatey! I have been researching various recipes to find one that goes beyond wonderful. One that defines ultimate chocolate cake…that will stand alone but when paired with any number of icings will shine through and be complimented and not overpowered…intense flavor without it grabbing your tastebuds and making them scream for their lives but instead, makes them hum in unison and beg for more.
The house is now filled with the smell of CHOCOLATE! The trimmings off the first batch from the oven(the warm taste test) proved to be delicious…moist…almost brownie-like. Of course, each batch must pass the warm, cold , overnight, frozen-then-thawed taste tests. It’s a shame one person must endure this all alone.
