For me, a chocolate cake is the basic unit of celebration. The chocolate Guinness cake here is simple but deeply pleasurable, and has earned its place as a stand-alone treat. (Photo: Suzy Allman for The New York Times)
Nigella's Quadruple Chocolate Loaf Cake - I've made this once every couple/few months for years, except changing the sour cream for yogurt/greek yogurt, and it's so super chocolately. Never even thought about pinning it as I've not needed a recipe for years, so remembered when I saw other pins! RLI firmly recommends!!
