We’re going to keep it really simple and delicious this week. Let’s be honest we all have a thousand things going on right now and no one needs to add to the list! This Easy Dark Chocolate Cake is hands down my favorite cake. It’s super simple to make, uses just one bowl and is both delicious and light. Topped with a nice pile of whipped cream and sprinkled with cinnamon it’s really a delightful dessert.
Do you get overwhelmed by all the rich food and sweets during the holiday season? I love food but it can definitely get tiring. The good news is that this cake looks lovely and fancy but is incredibly airy. The cake has a deep dark chocolate flavor accented with a little punch of espresso. However, because we are making it with hot water and buttermilk it has a very soft and fluffy texture. Putting whipped cream on top gives a beautiful pile of “icing” but without all the sugar and butter. I like to sprinkle mine with cinnamon because I love the flavor combination, but you can put whatever you like on top!
