Bake A Cake Worth Every Calorie

chocolate3By Diane Von Furstenberg

I found this recipe years ago in a Glamour magazine I think. It is so damn good, its the best dark chocolate cake ever, and super moist and crumbly at the same time. Diane Von Furstenberg has been serving this cakensince the 1970s, and Andy Warhol even mentions it in his diaries. This recipe makes a 9′ round cake.chocolate4chocolate2chocolate
