The Ultimate Chocolate Cake

When it comes to showing affection or using love words my husband, Dwight is very conservative. Especially if we are in public… You know, it is a usual “guy” thing.

However, when it comes to this chocolate cake it appears that he can be different. I knew that I did something right when I heard him say that he is “in love” with this cake as he was putting a spoon full of it in his mouth.

Dwight has a huge sweet tooth. So much so that if we do not have something sweet with his “after dinner” tea he would not mind driving to the nearest bakery to get some. No matter what time it is.

Therefore, as a loving wife, I make sure that we have dessert available everyday.

Let me tell you something guys. I looked at the dictionary for the definition of the Ultimate Chocolate Cake. They did not bother writing an explanation. They had the below picture.

This chocolaty cake is so gooey, silky and moist that makes you fall in love with cacao and butter over and over again. When I made the mistake of tasting the chocolate glaze, we almost ran into the problem of not having any to pour on the cake.

It is important that you wait for the cake to cool before drizzling the chocolate glaze over it. I know it is hard to wait but believe me if you do not wait the results are not that appealing. Do you want to know how I know? Because it happened to me.

Let me let you in on a secret. These pictures are not taken after that first try.

The best thing about it is that it does not require any fancy mixers or other equipment. All you need is your strong arms and hands to mix it. The ingredients are things that you would probably have home if you are into baking.
I usually make this on Sundays. As long it is covered it keeps fresh and moist throughout the week even if you leave it outside. In our case, it is usually finished by Wednesday.
