This recipe is, as the best are, an amalgamation of recipes i’ve seen in different cookbooks and blogs. I have a long and devoted relationship with chocolate that is best celebrated through a simple and moist chocolate cake. Throw on some powdered sugar, whipped cream and berries and I am in heaven. Huge shout out to my friend Skylar who tested this recipe for the first time! It was a bit cruel of me to hand her a recipe I had never tried but she is an epic baker and the result was the perfect ending to a great dinner.

If you don’t have a Bundt or ring cake pan just use a regular 9″ circular pan. It won’t look as awesome but it will taste just as good.
