another thin layer of cake

another thin layer of cake

I don’t generally need much of an excuse to make chocolate desserts. But, this is Valentine’s week, so chocolate is not only welcomed but expected.

When I first found this recipe, I was instantly enamored with all those chocolate-y layers. Just look at them! Really, what’s better to layer with chocolate than more chocolate?

We start with a simple, thin cake flavored with espresso. That’s topped with chocolate whipped cream and another thin layer of cake. Then, let’s just pour on even more chocolate with a rich topping.

The end result was as good as I had hoped. So. Much. Chocolate. As someone who is not a coffee fan, I’m happy to say that the flavor doesn’t come through in a big way. Instead, it’s a wonderful enhancer of all that chocolate.

Perhaps my favorite part of this cake is it’s texture. It’s so soft and smooth. I normally resist such clichés, but it melts in your mouth. It is truly a pleasure to eat.

If I can offer a word of warning, cutting this cake can be a bit of a messy proposition. The topping is much tougher to cut through than the rest of the cake, and it may tend to fall apart a bit. Just use a sharp knife and take your time.

Go to all lengths I can face the winter with calm We are not born with courage Give the meaning of life The Heart Knows Best You can choose switching it up As you catch yourself judging Wealth is commonplace Just for a moment.
