January 27th is a very special day. It’s National Chocolate Cake Day.
And the web is awash with the most amazing chocolate cakes you’ve ever seen. Like this one. And this one, and this one.
Been there. Done that.
Cakes that don’t require three layers and a buttercream frosting. Cakes that don’t involve beating butter with sugar and then slowly adding eggs, praying that the batter won’t curdle. Cakes so flavorful that you can eat them right out of the pan with only a dusting of powdered sugar. Or glam them up with chocolate glaze. If you want to.
And since I no longer eat an entire chocolate cake in one wanton sitting (those were the days!), I also focused on cakes that not only keep over a couple of days but actually improve in flavor and texture.
You know, Dream Cakes. Get on the train!
