Decadent chocolate cake will make any chocolate lover weak in the knees. This cake is so moist, each bite will literally melt in your mouth as you eat it!
Last night, my family and I had dinner with some old friends. I had a craving for chocolate, so it didn’t take me long to figure out what I wanted to bring for dessert. A French cake called, gâteau au chocolat fondant, essentially, a melt in your mouth decadent chocolate cake! Ooo, la la!
I have made this petite chocolate cake at least 20 times in the last 2 years. It generally doesn’t last on the serving plate for more than 10 minutes. It is a small, round, chocolate-loaded plate of happiness! This was proven to me once again last night when I watched 2 little girls giggle with delight at its sweet goodness. 🙂
I found this decadent chocolate cake recipe 2 years ago, when I read A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg.
My Foodie Friend, Isabelle, recommended this book to me and I have made many of the tasty treasures featured inside. A Homemade Life is a collection of recipes and stories of Wizenberg’s life. The last chapter features a cake that the author served at her wedding. Here’s a link to the author’s website: http://orangette.blogspot.com/
Just reading the description of the cake piqued my interest, so I had to try it. I took it to a staff holiday lunch at work and to a family holiday gathering and it has been requested of me many times ever since.
This melt in your mouth chocolate cake is incredibly easy to make.
You can even make it heart shaped for Valentine’s Day!
Once you have eaten it, you will crave this decadent chocolate cake incessantly.
The best news is, your family will love you for making it.
Well, love you more I mean! 😉
