For me, a chocolate cake is the basic unit of celebration. The chocolate Guinness cake here is simple but deeply pleasurable, and has earned its place as a stand-alone treat. (Photo: Suzy Allman for The New York Times)
There is very little that needs to be said about a chocolate mousse cake. This one lives up to its name. It is gloriously intense. But the whisked egg whites ensure that it has a balancing lightness. A slice of it, with a smattering of fresh raspberries and a dollop of cream, or better still, sour cream, is the perfect finale. (Photo: Jim Wilson/The New York Times)
Nigella's Quadruple Chocolate Loaf Cake - I've made this once every couple/few months for years, except changing the sour cream for yogurt/greek yogurt, and it's so super chocolately. Never even thought about pinning it as I've not needed a recipe for years, so remembered when I saw other pins! RLI firmly recommends!!
Chocolate Honey Cake I have been looking for a recipe like this! Used to buy a honey chocolate cake years ago at a grocery store but haven't seen them for a long long time! Finally I can make one, hope it is just as good or better than what I remember!
Nigella's Devil's Food Cake (American measurements can be found on Food Network site showing same recipe - they just didn't have a picture, so I couldn't pin it) - this looks lovely (btw, for the frosting, use chocolate with at least 70% cocoa) - enjoy!!
