Dark Chocolate Brownie Cake with Salted Caramel Glaze

Sometimes you are in the supermarket, strolling along the aisles, when you come across the baking section and you look at those 8. oz bars of baking chocolate stacked up high and you think, how can I buy a dozen of these without looking like some sort of chocolate fiend? Well the answer lies within this cake.

I seriously cannot live without chocolate, and I am sure that I am not alone. I used to think milk chocolate was the best thing an eleven-year-old kid could ask for until I realized dark chocolate existed.

And after that I never had a single piece of milk chocolate again. I really don’t know why but whenever I would try it in a normal candy bar it just didn’t taste good, it didn’t really even taste like chocolate to me.

So this cake is a celebration for my love of dark chocolate. I mean I could literally drink this batter. All that ridiculous amount of butter and chocolate mixed harmoniously together could make a chocolate-lover cry.

8 Cakes I Wish I Had The Guts To Bake

AHHH, I wish I had an excuse to bake beautiful cakes all the time! But apparently my friends’ birthdays are for like another few months. Sigh.

So what do I do until then? Just bake a cake every week and eat it by myself?

I don’t get how those food bloggers do it, you know, the ones who only blog about cakes. They always say they have grateful neighbors who help eat it all.

Well, they obviously don’t live in New York City, cause the word ‘neighbor’ here don’t mean diddly squat.

1. SALTED CARAMEL DRENCHED COFFEE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Oh crap, my mouth just started watering, again. It does this every, single timmmeee.

I just see Slim Palate‘s action shot of hot oozing caramel being poured over a cake, it’s bronze glow glistening as it seeps into a pool of yumminess…

Yep, drool is seeping out of my mouth. THIS IS TORTURE.

2. CHOCOLATE CHIP LAYER CAKE

This is a great starter cake for anyone, that is simple yet looks soooo delicious.

I think the fact that Baked Bree‘s cake is just black and white and isn’t over-the-top makes it such a gem.

And c’mon, chocolate chips all up in my cake? You won me over, baby.
