When Mike was 11 years old he had "the best chocolate cake ever" at a friend's house. He asked the friend's mother for the recipe so his mom could make it home. Isn't that cute?
His mom gave me that recipe, but I could never earn the "Best Cake Ever" status. My cakes all tend to be slightly on the dry side. A friend of mine has used the exact same recipe and gets marvelous, moist cake so I don't entirely get it.
Anyway..."Chocolate Cupcakes with Bittersweet Glaze" is a recipe from A Homemade Life. (Make a comment and I could be sending it to you soon!) Mike is in love with me all over again. These were a major hit. Like I said, if you get a craving for chocolate, this will fill the bill.
Now, the very last recipe in the book is also for a chocolate cake that comes with instruction that it should not be served to someone your feel just so-so about. It is for when you want to get some one's full attention.
Hmm...lots of chocolate, lots of butter, sugar and eggs, a teeny bit of flour. It's called the "Winning Hearts and Minds Cake." Do I even dare??
