Melt in Your Mouth Chocolate Cake

    1 hour 10 minutes

    This cake is best served the next day when all the chocolate in it has had a chance to reset and it becomes a rich, dense, stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth cake. Delicious warmed and served with ice cream or double cream.

    I made this cake 2 days ago. I would say the description of the cake is false. it is not rich dense and stick to the roof of your mouth cake which i was quite disappointed about. The cake turned out moist, it tasted better two days ago than it did on the first day. its very light and crumbly. I dusted it with cocoa powder on the top as i thought it was missing something. I heated it up as suggested after the first day and although it was warm it tasted much better at room temperature. overall its still a really nice cake and i would make it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe  -  30 Nov 2011


    Was such an easy cake to make. I made it the day before and put chocolate frosting on it. It was very moist and a nice light cake. Everyone loved it  -  25 Aug 2013
