“This is a super yummy, dense, rich, chocolate cake (it is almost like fudge). Although it is awesome just as a slice I think it is perfect with ice cream! It reminds me of the fudge chunks you get in high end ice creams. There is a very mild orange taste that could easily be changed if it's not your thing. Add your favorite topping (whip cream, coulis, whatever!)”
1 cake
