The Cake That Cures Everything

From Ruth Reichl’s My Kitchen Year. I have made this cake twice now. Once for an employee’s birthday at work and once for a family celebration. It has been a hit both times. I think this may be my new go-to chocolate cake recipe. This cake lived up to its title.

I made a half recipe. The first time I used 9-inch pans and I thought the cake was a little thin so next time I used 8-inch pans which I liked better. The frosting is not a huge amount so I thought it worked better on an  8-inch size. One of the reasons this is a fantastic recipe is the moist cake and the other is the frosting. The frosting is a chocolate cream cheese which was delicious.

If you like chocolate then I urge you to make this recipe. My Kitchen Year page 63 or Ruth’s website.

    I haven't heard of this recipe before, but it does sound promising, especially the notion of chocolate cream cheese frosting! Yum. I'd have to lick the bowl:)


  3. Chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting sounds like a winner! I'll have to give it a try. It's nice to have a go to chocolate cake recipe that's not from a box.
