My husband always makes me a special treat for my birthday. I get to choose. No matter how long and involved, he makes it. I love that he is so sweet to make it for me. In years past he has made me Chocolate Silk Pie, S’more Pie, and a Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse.
This year I decided I didn’t want a chocolate dessert. (I plan to post the results of this year’s birthday treat once it’s complete, so I won’t say what it is yet).
Unfortunately, this past weekend, it just didn’t happen. So, instead I snuck into the kitchen and whipped up this super easy chocolate cake.
Chocolate Cake… Cupboard Cooking Cookbook Update
I bet you have all the ingredients to make this chocolate cake in your cupboard right now (which is what makes this cake great for the “Cupboard Cooking” Cookbook).
Scratch cakes are not that hard, nor are they time consuming.
The cake is delightful, and not overly sweet. You could also add 1 teaspoon of espresso powder to the mix to make it mocha cake.
Oh, and as an added bonus for some people, this cake is vegan. But, don’t tell anyone when you serve it, they don’t need to know, and they won’t be able to tell any difference.
P.S. my brother-in-law made cream cheese filled lemon cupcakes for me on Sunday. They were fabulous!
