The Best French Chocolate Cake
65 mins (prep 20, cooking 45)
11 ingredients
10-12 servings
This is one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted (and I don't really like chocolate cakes that much!). It's dense but not too sweet so you can eat heaps of it if you like. It will keep in the fridge for a few days. This recipe comes from a book called "French food and cooking" by Carole Clements and Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen.
