Little Chocolate Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
This is a deliciously moist cake and just the right size for a few people. It serves six generously. I added some expresso powder and used a glaze rather than a heavy frosting and found that to be a perfect compliment to the sweet cake. I think 4 servings to be too large and even 8 servings is still generous especially when you look at the calories for 4 servings. Make it, you won't be disappointed!!
I said I wouldn't make this recipe again, but let me clarify. The cake was great and it was the first time I've ever made cake from scratch. The frosting, well, I've never made that from scratch either...so I wasn't aware of what was involved. But even that wouldn't have detered me. It's that it was way TOO sweet. In fact, it was such a sugar rush that I could actually feel it hitting my bloodstream and I'm someone with a sweet tooth. If I was more familiar with frosting I might play around with the recipe. The servings might need to be rethought....4 servings from a 8 x 8 pan? Those are some BIG servings. To each their own, I guess.
Something is wrong here. One piece cannot equal 945 calories and 159g of carbohydrate.
The only thing I would change is double the recipe. It came out way smaller than the picture looks. The icing is different but good and you can still mix powdered sugar with it and it still tastes good,just sweeter and it lightens the chocolate color.
