My American friend shared this wonderful recipe with me. In fact, she is not a big cooking fan, but for birthday parties or other special occasions she is always bringing this homemade cake.
This sweet chocolate cake is very rich and delicious. It is great to be served for any occasion: from kid’s birthday and family reunion to a neighbor’s or company potluck.
The recipe calls for a large cake, so if you need less, just cut the ingredients in half.
Sweet, chocolate, delightful, mouthwatering, and unbelievably easy to prepare pleaser!
