Very Dark Chocolate Cake

After ruining my first cake today (see previous post) I went for something quick and easy. This is the recipe for Perfectly Chocolate Cake, and frosting from the box of Hershey's cocoa. I used the Special Dark cocoa which for the money, is really pretty decent. You certainly can't improve on that colour. My only regret was not doing a whipped cream filling to provide a striking contrast, but the chocolate frosting was awfully swell.

You couldn't pay me to eat a Hershey's Special Dark chocolate bar (blech) but the powdered cocoa is just terrific.

The recipe is easily found all over the internet and at the Hershey's website.

I read an ounce and a half of dark chocolate a day helps relieve stress- although I'm afraid with that cake I wouldn't be able to stop! Great pic!

Ounce and a half huh? *Makes note on shopping list...*

You know how most children at some point try nibbling at the baking chocolate, and spit it out as it is so bitter? My five year old will eat unsweetened baking chocolate. I guess if it health food...;)
