Dorie's Devil of a Cake.....

What a fantastic cake! I know, I have indicated that I am not a chocoholic, but this is one chocolate cake I will make again! Straight forward and easy to make; I used the full recipe but made small heart shaped bites and heart shaped cupcakes. It was my birthday on the 15th and even though I am in training I had ONE small heart to celebrate. I made a cream cheese frosting because it was MY birthday and I love cream cheese frosting. I used Nestles semi-sweet chocolate chunks that I chopped into smaller pieces and really liked the pockets of chocolate in the cake. Many thanks to Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater for a great recipe!

Definitely a cake worth cheating a little for! Probably delish with cream cheese frosting.

Yep, the cake is a keeper recipe. I chopped up some baking pieces too, and the little shots of chocolate were great. Happy birthday - the birthday girl totally gets to pick the flavors. Your hearts look fantastic.
