Black Magic Cake
The very best chocolate cake I have ever made. I consider myself a very experienced baker with a treasure chest of old-world, family recipes, as well as some very good chocolate cakes from various cook books, specialty cake books, pastry chefs, etc. Nothing came close to this.
I made it for a dinner party and topped the cake with a French mousseline frosting. Unbelievable. I could have eaten it just as well plain. Every single guest said it was the best cake they had ever tasted, and each had a second piece.
My spouse, who is not one for sweets, polished it off the next day and said that, by far, this was the best chocolate cake I've made in the 28 years we've been together.
Thank you so much for contributing this recipe.
