Chocogasm Cake


Hello everyone, so today's recipe is a bit more involved but so worth it if you love chocolate.  This recipe has 4 different elements of chocolate.  This is not health food but its a great treat maybe once a year.  I have made this recipe once in the 5 years I have known this recipe.  If that tells you how decadent this recipe is.  There are a lot of elements to this recipe so let's get this started.


Ingredients for the cake:


2 cups of flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 cup of cocoa
1 cup of chocolate sauce ( you can use the stuff you use over ice cream if you dont have the homemade stuff we made Monday)
4 beaten eggs
1/4 cup of water


Ingredients for frosting glaze and drizzle


1 cup of butter
2 cups of milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons of powdered sugar
1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream
1 cup of white chocolate chips


Instructions:


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Grab a large mixing bowl and mix all your ingredients for your cake except the eggs.  You want to beat those in a small bowl and then add to the batter.  Grab a well greased cake pan and pour the batter in the pan.  Bake for about 30-45 minutes depending on your oven.
While the cake is in the oven its time to get started on the frosting.  You want to melt in a small sauce pan the butter and milk chocolate chips.  After the butter and chocolate chips have melted add in the powdered sugar, whipping cream and on low heat mix together. Take off the heat and let cool until the cake is done.  This frosting will thicken upon standing.  Next grab a microwave safe bowl and add your white chocolate chips.  Melt in the microwave you may need to add a little milk or cream just to loosen up the white chocolate.  When your cake is finished frost the cake with the milk chocolate frosting and its ok if the cake isnt cooled you want that gooeyness.  Then drizzle with the white chocolate and cut yourself a slice.  This is so rich and gooey, I wish I took of a picture of it when I made it but I didnt do blogs when I made this cake.  I hope you love it you chocolate lovers.  Until tomorrow live, laugh and love everyone!
