My friend: the chocolate cake……what would I do without you?  In times of need, you have never let me down.  Giant slabs sliced and demolished in between sobs over lost love.  Entire cakes inhaled in a fit of late night PMS cravings.  Or, iced to perfection, candles aglow, ready to share and celebrate a birthday with friends and family.  The chocolate cake will never go out of style, so here we have our all-time BEST chocolate cake recipes with something for everyone; allergy friendly, gluten free and, wait for it…..the cake with 1KG of chocolate in it.  Oh yes. Get. In. My. Belly.

Simple, no frills, classic chocolate cake for those ‘just because‘ moments in life. (gluten free)
