This chocolate cake may not devastate you, but it will enrich your life with its decadence. Your friends, with whom you decide to be the most generous of persons, and share a piece (or a bite?) with are likely be grateful for some time. This cake may well become a stand-by for parties, friend’s birthdays, and those cold winter days when chocolate cake and a cup of tea (or beer or wine) is what you are craving.
