There is a great adultness to being able to casually make a chocolate cake on a Monday night for no particular reason. This cake is so simple to make with a super decadent result. The texture is almost molten and stays moist for days (although amazing warm out of the oven)… making it perfect for slicing off a wedge here and there throughout the week. It’s not super sweet and the rosewater is subtle… it mainly screams chocolate in a way you deserve. Don’t make yourself wait for the next birthday celebration you are in control of your chocolate cake destiny… whip this one up tonight.
