Rich Chocolate Cake
- 25 Comments
Yesterday was J’s birthday. What better gift than achocolatecake, covered with chocolate ganacheand decorated with chocolate roses. That is how I set out to make this cake. It came out better than I expected and J sure was elated seeing it. But the irony of the situation was that J was not at home to cut the cake not even to taste it. He had to be satisfied with a virtual birthday cake, while we had the real one.
Even though I have tried out quite a few chocolate cake recipes, the one I am sharing with you today is my favourite. It was taken down few years back from the net and I do not recollect the source. 🙁 I can assure you that this recipe is a keeper. The original recipe calls for boiling water. Adding a teaspoon of coffee powder makes a lot of difference in the flavour. I have always been adding coffee.
