Chocolate Moist Cake

August 17, 2011

My idea of a perfect Chocolate Cake is the one which is extra moist … The “melts in your mouth”  kind of moist with just the right amount of sweetness. When it comes to Chocolates i always prefer Dark chocolate over Milk Chocolate … i feel it has more flavor. I feel A chocolate cake is after all a chocolate cake so never shy away in using a handsome amount of chocolate of cocoa powder.

I baked the Best tasting Chocolate cake for my Husband’s Birthday …… I am sharing the recipe …. it is a MUST TRY … for all the chocoholics and the wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to make that even if you are not into baking you can still impress you friends and family. They will just go Woooo over this one trust me … !!!!
