Commitment Chocolate Cake

Thursday, 15 October 2015

So it was a special friend's birthday on Monday (Hey G!). She requested a chocolate on chocolate on chocolate cake for her special day, which we celebrated on Wednesday.

There was no doubt in my mind which cake I should make!

It's Janet and Greta Podleski's chocolate cake (the authors of Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat Shrink and be Merry).  I have to admit I am not super fans of a lot of their recipes, but this one is amazing...mostly because it's at the end of the cookbook, when they decide to not count calories or use low fat/low sugar options.

Baking with actual baking chocolate! - super fun :)
I don't like the name of the recipe in the cookbook, so I am going to change it to Commitment Chocolate Cake.  You should only make this cake if you are committed for it to take a while and you are showing the person you are making it for (whether it be yourself or someone else) that you are committed to them (I am committed to our friendship G.! I, myself, received this cake, before, from another committed friend. What up C!)

I made the cake.  It took forever. Every. Single. Bite. Was. Ridiculous.

What's that thing Madonna says?  ABSOLUTELY NO REGRETS. (and now G. loves me more than evah!)

The one thing I realized about blogs and baking is that you should probably take pictures... well...I fell down on the blogging job this time around (I started off well...).

My apologies.

So I am sharing a picture of this cake bathed in the lovely glow of a computer screen at work (cuz ya know..the fluorescent lights were too much). I am sure you can appreciate the juxtaposition. It's avant garde-ness, if you will.

In the meantime, tomorrow will be day three of eating chocolate cake for lunch (the thing is gigantic!). Nuttin' wrong with that right? Just don't tell the dietitians that I work with.

Happy almost Friday!




  1. word homie! I am committed to our friendship. Any time you need a massive cake you just let me know.

  2. I am trying this tonight. God help me, I am probably going to regret introducing this into ricks diet. Lol!

  3. its soooooo good!!! good luck :)
