Chocolate Layer Cake
I haven't really baked much this summer. This one was worth the effort, and the extra heat. It is like chocolate heaven. Be warned however the cake is a bit dense (and moist). All you would need is a small slice to satisfy your chocolate cravings. :)
I pretty much followed the recipe from Food & Wine: Fudgy Chocolate Layer Cake. I scaled the recipe to make 2/3. Baked in a 13x9 pyrex glass pan. After it cooled down I cut it in equal pieces and made the ganache frosting. I accidentally put too much cream in the frosting and I was able to fix it by adding some cornstarch - and it worked! It took us a couple of days to devour this little cake.
