This cake is so chocolatey and delicious!!! 

We served it alongside custard but a nice ganache or glaze over the top would be lovely. Ice cream and fresh raspberries would be even better! Yum. 
This is so simple it’s one of my go to recipes. The trick to a nice moist cake is not over cooking it. Dont worry if you do, buttercream icing solves everything!

  5. 3 eggs

  6. Add sugar and vanilla.
