To be quite honest, I am a sucker for chocolate cake. I love these sweet treats because they are so simple to make. I get all the ingredients, add in the chocolate and vanilla, and it comes out delicious.
But what I love most about chocolate cake is that it’s an incredibly low maintenance recipe. Because it takes just a few steps to make, you can make a few more to have on hand for dinner, or for an afternoon snack.
Now if you find yourself with less time or energy, or don’t have a chocolate cake recipe to hand, then I highly recommend looking into a low maintenance recipe. My favorite recipe is just a few ingredients and a few minutes, which is great if you have a busy time of day. You don’t have to worry about the cake getting mushy or burnt, or the frosting crumbling.
The recipe I use is from a post on The Cheat Sheet, and as you can see there are some ingredients that are going to be hard to find when you have a busy time of day. But this can also be a good recipe to have on hand for an afternoon snack. When I am having a good time, I like to have a bag of almonds handy to sprinkle on the top of the cake, or to put in the icing so that it doesnt get too soft.
This recipe is for a chocolate cake made with almonds. When I make this cake with chocolate, I use the almonds and the chocolate to give the cake more of a dark chocolate flavor, which is why it is called chocolate cake. This cake is also incredibly easy to make, and you can use whatever chocolate you prefer. Just make sure you keep it away from any heavy cream, butter, or sugar.
I have made this cake with chocolate for my family, and everyone loves it. I only use almonds because I’ve been getting the most compliments on the cake that I’ve made with them. You can use whatever chocolate you like, but be sure to soak them in cold water first.
I know it’s a lot of work, but you can make a big batch of this cake for a party or a big holiday, and you won’t even feel like you’re working. Here’s the recipe.
Chocolate cake for 150 hours. That’s a lot of time. But that’s the beauty thing about chocolate. It keeps making you happy.
I think its safe to say that if you have a sweet tooth like I do, you would be hard pressed to find a cake that isnt really good for you when you first try it. Ive been making this recipe for almost a month now and its still amazing. Its a lot of work but its worth it. You can really do anything with chocolate when you let it melt in your mouth.
