This Best Chocolate Cake is moist, spongy and extremely delectable. Made with few simple ingredients and glazed with the best chocolate glaze ever. This Chocolate Cake is every chocolate lover’s dream. Hands down.
My son celebrated his 8th Birthday last week with this Best Chocolate Cake. His birthday was quiet (with this social isolation regulations) but a good one nevertheless. You really don’t need much when you get to celebrate your special day with Gooey, Spongy Chocolate Cake, right? He woke up to his standard wake-me-up-with-a-piece-of-brownie birthday greetings from us and ended his day with this Chocolate cake with Chocolate Glaze. affair
I baked him this simple yet delicious chocolate cake which has been the best chocolate cake I ever baked. The ingredients are simple and the process is even simpler. Kept the glaze just a simple chocolate one too. And one thing I can vouch for is, you will end up with the Best Chocolate Cake even if you keep your ingredients simple.
