I made it to 100 posts. I figure that's some sort of milestone that should be celebrated in one way or another, right?
Cake is always a good choice for celebrating. I actually brought this cake to my In-Law's house since they were hosting a little family barbecue. And yes, it's really called, "Chocolate Freak Out."
The recipe comes from one of my favorite cookbook authors: Diane Rossen Worthington- in an older cookbook called, The California Cook. Everything I've tried from this cookbook author has been excellent.
All the worrying was for naught. It softened up slightly after about 20 minutes at room temperature. This was a chocolate lover's dream. A little slice was completely satisfying. I took only a couple of bites, and left all the remaining slices behind... since I'm watching my behind.
*Note... the cake may also be covered with a simple sprinkle of powdered sugar or you can really freak it out with a layer of rich ganache.
