Weekend Kitchen: My favorite chocolate cake (it’s gluten free!)


By Julia Westhoff

I know Valentine’s Day is over, but to me the entire month of February is about chocolate. Actually, let’s be honest: The entire year is about chocolate. And I was so thrilled with this recipe I had to share it immediately. It can best be described as fudgy brownie meets soufflé meets chocolate mousse. Need I say more? It’s absolutely delicious and one of the best desserts I have ever made. The only downside? It’s not the prettiest cake in the world. Luckily, it was just us eating this cake. Actually it was just me eating this cake, and I am not picky.

This recipe, called Ooey and Gooey Double Baked Chocolate Cake, is great warm from the oven, when it eats like a molten lava cake, but is also delicious cold, where it’s more like a chocolate pudding mixed with a brownie. If I haven’t whet your appetite already, there is clearly something wrong with you. Make this for someone you love (especially if that someone is yourself!).

The recipe comes from Food52, one of my favorite food websites. Find it here.
