Seeing as it is Valentine’s day soon, I’m pleased to introduce my new favourite chocolate cake! This recipe is the ultimate decadent cake recipe, it’s extremely indulgent. The chocolate cake itself is covered with a soft chocolate icing that gives a nice gooey texture to the dessert. It’s the perfect dessert for a romantic dinner!!
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be a good opportunity to share with you this new perfect chocolate cake recipe. It is perfect because it’s probably the easiest chocolate cake recipe I have ever made: there are no beaten egg whites and you mix all the ingredients in the same bowl. Also the texture of the chocolate cake is similar to a chocolate fondant. The preparation time is very fast, 20 minutes, and the baking time 20 minutes.
And in order to make it look more like a Valentine’s Day cake, I decided to use a heart shape cake dish and, once the icing is spread, add some fresh red fruit slices or pieces, such as strawberries or raspberries for the decoration. For any special Valentine’s Day dessert, you can easily find a heart shape cake dish online here.
