Bake-a-thon 2015: Day 13
Bake of the day: Sourdough Chocolate Cake
I made this cake twice — first time for my cousins birthday, but I couldn’t take pictures and second time to take pictures and enjoy it again. The cake doesn’t have any tell tale sign taste of sourdough and everybody liked it a lot. It is a very moist and chocolaty cake that needs just a little bit of planning.
The cake is topped with a fudge like coffee icing that is a great counterpoint to the chocolate, both in flavor and appearance. My chocolate drizzle looks a little sloppy but that didn’t take way from the taste of the cake.
The sun has been playing a little hooky for the past few days and taking pictures has become almost impossible. I made the cake yesterday but with the cloudy weather couldn’t take the photos, I took the cake to my cousin’s for dinner and brought back leftovers to take pictures today. With all the moving, the frosting melted and looks messy, but it tasted delicious though.
