I always search for a chocolate cake recipe that contains just cocoa without any melted chocolate and that has an rich taste. Well this recipe has all the caracteristics of a rich, dense, chocolatey cake.
Its texture is amazing, it’s fluffy, light, moist and has a strong chocolatey taste. And the best thing is that the batter is ready to enter the oven in maximum 10 minutes. Mixing the ingredients was so simple. And it just needed 30 to 35 minutes baking.
I saw this recipe last week on a tv show for Robin Miller and as soon as the show was over I went into the kitchen and started whisking. Yes, I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, that makes the cake wonderful, except for the buttermilk, because I don’t think we have it in the supermarkets. So I did a slight change and I used instead whole-fat yogurt.
And the result was so delicious, the cake was so perfect, the way I like it.
