Crazy Chocolate Cake

Crazy Chocolate Cake
Crazy is a relative term but normal is boring to me. This cake defies any normal chocolate cake recipe only in its method. The recipe does not need any fancy equipment or fill your sink with dirty bowls of various size. All you need is the round cake pan, spatula,and measuring spoons-now how’s that for simplicity? I’ve made recipes with steps spanning days like my croissant recipe and I assure you they are well worth the effort however I equivalently love simple recipes without compromising its taste. This recipe definitely is a keeper.

The best part of this recipe apart from utilizing the minimum utensils as possible, is that they also contain no eggs, no butter, no dairy of any kind. My friends who are lactose intolerant and vegan, this cake is for you. The cake is soft, moist and absolutely delicious. I used some leftover ganache from my triple chocolate banana bread (recipe here). Enjoy!!!
