You know when you crave cold, rich chocolate cake and there is no other way to suffice your craving than to make a deliciously moist chocolate cake, cut it in two and frost that sucker nice and thick? And then as soon as it’s beautiful and perfect you cut a slice and ruin the whole presentation that you and your cousin (well, mostly your cousin) spent 45 minutes slaving over? Sounds like my afternoon!
This recipe is a keeper. My darling cousin (who is a serious baker) found it and swears by it. It’s from allrecipes.com which always has the best recipes, if you ask me. The description says, “the best cake in the entire world.” Allllright, that’s a little lofty, but I’m sorry, IT’S TRUE! Make it, it’s easy, slap some frosting on that thing, let it chill out in the fridge, yank it out, and devour. At least that was my plan of action.
I really don’t have any more words. I’m too busy finding another excuse to dig into it again…
I’ll leave you with a photo that is maybe even sweeter than this cake. A photo of my cousin’s first born, experiencing his first encounter with marshmallow fluff. Be still, my heart!
