Who said Valentine's has to be about red and pink and fruity treats?
Valentine's should be rich and deep, smooth and silky, bold and full of sin.
Oh my, I think I just entered in to a porno.... Not my intention...
I believe that a decadent chocolate cake also cries out LOVE!
Your significant other will think that you slaved for hours making this wonderfully rich and moist chocolate cake. However, if you make it home from work at 5 and pop this into the oven while eating dinner, you'll have the best chocolate cake for dessert!
I found this recipe and knew I had to make it.
Here's what you need:
1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
1 pint coffee ice cream, softened (or chocolate)
1 cup of water
Here's what you do:
Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
Grease a bundt pan, then dust with cake mix powder.
Beat all ingredients together for 4 minutes.
Pour into bunt pan and bake for 45 minutes.
Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
Let me introduce you to my NEW MacKenzie-Childs Cake Platter! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!
I need to have it stored away under lock and key and never, ever put food on it...
Oh well! It's too beautiful NOT to use it!
I am a HUGE fan of frosting on my cakes, however, this one just does not need it!
I did make this cake with Coffee Ice Cream. I was hoping that it would give it some Mocha Coffee type flavor, but it was not there.
Next time, I plan on adding a cup of cold coffee in place of the water.
I also want to try Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream!
Can you see just how moist and rich this cake is? Can ya?
You don't know what you are missin'!
Indulge! You deserve it!
