Who doesn’t love a rich, decadent, moist chocolate cake! This sinfully delicious yet easy to make cake has never failed in my kitchen. I have baked it countless times and it has turned out exceptionally well every single time. I have baked it in different cake tins and with different frosting. This time I made this in a bundt cake tin and as expected, turned out awesome.

A wonderful dessert. We love a warm slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When I serve it this way, my daughter calls it cookie ice cream as it tastes similar to cookies and cream ice cream.

Christmas is right around the corner and what better way to get into a holiday mood than baking a perfect, delicious, moist chocolate cake! Try it and do let me know how you like it.

Bake this cake in a round tin and try my gravity defying cake. Perfect center piece for any celebration!
