It’s National Chocolate Cake Day! Well, in the U.S., that is. But the rest of you are welcome to celebrate it with us!
But, since I’m always game to try out a new dessert recipe (and the above combination is too time-consuming for a weekday), I am going to make Ruth Reichl’s Giant Chocolate Cake as featured at the New York Times. I read her memoir Garlic and Sapphires and loved it, hopefully I will love this cake too. I am going to halve the recipe as there are only 4 of us so we do not need 25 servings of cake! Not sure if I will use her frosting recipe or instead Rosie’s super easy Fudge Frosting. I really like the Rosie’s baking book (by Judy Rosenberg) in case you can’t tell.
Anyone else celebrating National Chocolate Cake Day?
