Spring is here and today I am sharing with you the most spring-fitting recipe ever! OK. I am not. I am bad, I know. Because today we have lots of chocolate on the menu. Wait! Chocolate has no season, right? You can enjoy it any time, right? Well, then I have all the excuse to post this recipe today for the most chocolate-rich chocolate cake I’ve posted on my blog to this day—Vienna chocolate cake. I spotted the recipe in one of Dan Lepard’s baking books and fell in love with it from first read. According to the author, it is the simplified version of the original Austrian Sachertorte.
I set out to bake it. I have to confess I don’t have a sweet tooth and I don’t care for chocolate desserts as much as I do for lemon ones, I still wanted to try the recipe because I have a house full of chocoholics and I knew they would appreciate my efforts. Luckily, they did. And here’s to all of you, my chocoholic friends out there—the recipe to try and the cake to enjoy!
