Martha Stewart's One-Bowl Chocolate Cake
double chocolate layer from epicurious and Toba Garrett's chocolate fudge) for the last couple years, so I thought it'd be fun to look around again. And this last cake in the chocolate cake streak was prompted by a late-night craving, so I tried Martha Stewart's one-bowl chocolate cake. I was amazed at the little oil in the recipe, and in the end, I was disappointed. The cake rose like crazy and domed, so maybe I overbeat. It was a tough cake and not very chocolaty. The frosting was good, but seemed to be a mismatch with the cake. I might like the cake better with maybe whipped cream instead of a dense ganache type frosting. The frosting I would try again on a denser cake. So here's the last little piece.
It was fun to play around a little, and we got a couple new favorites with the Chocolate Cloud Roll and the Chocolate Orange Cake.
