Modern Baker: Heirloom Chocolate Cake

The Modern Bakers are baking cakes and this heirloom chocolate cake is a decadent delicious dessert for any night of the week!
The cake is made by whisking sugar into butter and then adding bittersweet chocolate, eggs, flour, and salt and whisking. The directions couldn't be easier and the ingredients are almost always on hand. This makes this cake so easy to make.

The cake is baked in an 8inch cake pan, cooled, and then refrigerated. N.M. says the cake is too soft to serve without refrigeration. I didn't quite understand why until afterwards.  The cake is dense yet soft, almost like a cross between a brownie and fudge. The refrigeration helps hold it together.

One little sliver of this cake feels like a decadent treat. We served ours with whip cream and strawberries to celebrate the last day of preschool and then walked some over to a dear friend who was celebrating the last day of kindergarten. This cake needs to shared!


  1. Sounds like just the thing for the guys here...they love chocolate and if it NEEDS to be shared, you can bet they won't hear a word of Great job. Thanks for tips.

  2. This looks like a great, easy weeknight dessert. I love having simple recipes like this that I can reach for when I want a quick treat.
