Everyday Chocolate Cake

On Saturday night, Mike and I went out for sushi with some friends. I love going out for sushi. It is delicious, and I love how I leave the restaurant feeling full, but not stuffed.

But then I went home and made this cake and ate a huge slice straight from the oven with vanilla ice cream. My good feeling was quickly ruined and I went to bed swearing off cake forever (again). When will I learn? Sheesh. But you know what? It was worth it. It seems like I am always on the hunt for a good chocolate cake recipe and this one is definitely a keeper.

It was moist and fudgey (I had no idea cake could even be fudgey), and soft and chocolatey. It is perfect served just by itself, no frosting or ice cream required. I love a good loaf cake, and this one is even better the next day! It would be the perfect gift for a friend or neighbor (if you don't eat it all first).

p.s. I used regular unsweetened cocoa (not dutch-processed) and 1/2 tsp baking soda, per the instructions. I baked mini loaves and they totally sunk in the middle (which I think indicates too much leavener?), but I didn't even care! They were so, so good.


  1. Sounds like a really delicious blend of tastes in that cake! Worth a shot in my book! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm sure you could eat a piece of chocolate cake every day and still look amazing, as usual. That cake looks delicious. I love all the recipes you post. You are like my test kitchen, I know if you like it, it's worth making. :)

  3. sounds delicious- I still think you are amazing. Love you
