Since young, I have always been a chocolate lover and eating chocolate always make me feel happy. Chocolate Cake is of course one of my favorites but I have been putting off the idea of baking it as it can get quite messy at times. I came across the lovely chocolate cake on Little Teochew and decided to put my hands into baking it.
Chocolate cake is a very rich cake. To get a good chocolate cake you must use very good quality chocolate. I used Valrhona Equatoriale 55% as suggested by Little Teochew and the cake turned out heavenly. The taste is just so perfect, you get the texture of a moist chocolate cake and not too sweet. Give this chocolate cake recipe a try over the weekend and you will definitely get lots of gleeful smiles from your loved ones.
