It’s crazy that my little dessert blog is already over a year old! Gosh, it has gone by fast. Perhaps, it’s the months of quarantine or the crazy insanity of moving a thousand miles away to a new home? MMM…🤔 Sounds about right.

When I started this blog, I wanted to share all types of desserts…including those that are smaller in scale. Just because we are making a cake, doesn’t mean it has to be a 4 layer extravaganza. Sometimes, it can be just a small cake that is delicious and will quickly satisfy your chocolate craving. Plus, it’s just enough for you and if you want to share, a friend.

A Short Supply List:

  • 6 inch cake pan ( see recipe card for the one I like) + your favorite way to grease it
  • Saucepan or microwave safe bowl
  • Medium size bowl + whisk

Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Salt+ Baking soda
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Chocolate chips
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Egg + Vanilla
  • Milk

A few recipe notes:

  • I used coconut palm sugar for this cake ( worked great!). However, regular white sugar can also be used.
  • This ganache is optional. Any flavor frosting will go with this cake! If you are looking for a homemade chocolate buttercream option, you can find the recipe here or a vanilla buttercream frosting can be found here.
  • Besides a frosting, a dusting of powdered sugar or cocoa powder are great options to top your cake.
