Sunday's Are Chocolate

Every Monday morning four of my neighbors get together and play bridge, I was asking each one what they served when they host the bridge club. Trying to find some fresh ideas. The response was," we just serve ice water". I was a little surprised by that response so they will be a little surprised when I show up with this perfect Chocolate Cake tomorrow. We just took a small slice to share what a moist and chocolaty cake. I debated over icing and just slice fresh strawberries and some blueberries on the side, with a teaspoon of raw sugar on top. Perfect. I found this recipe on the inside of a Bakers select bittersweet chocolate box.





Chocolate Indulgence Cake

1 package (6 squares) Baker select Bittersweet Baking Chocolate
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks butter
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 flour

Preheat oven to 350F Microwave chocolate butter in large microwaveable bowl on high 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted; cool to room temperature.
Beat eggs and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until thickened. Add chocolate mixture; stir with wire whisk until well blended Add flour; stir until well blended. Pour into greased and floured 9-inch round cake pan. Bake 30 minutes or until center is set Cool 5 minutes, remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into 12 wedges to serve.

Wow! Delectable and decadent and I love it! And this is so much more fun than ice water! Whoever said that should just be served a glass of water while everyone else gets a slice of this!

Hi Lynette

You should see what we serve at our card and book clubs! We are all foodies!! I am definitely taking this cake next club. I really like the concept of serving it with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of sugar. Thanks for sharing and have a great week.
