Chocolate delight

« It’s impossible to find anything moister or creamier than this. This cake, full of chocolate that melts in your mouth, is absolutely irresistible. If you bake the cake in a rectangular mold or a classic cake mold, it could very well replace the Christmas Yule log. Serve as is, with a red berry coulis, or with chestnuts. »
