Just Chocolate Cake

While studying, working and traveling you come across Chocolate Cake many recipes; some of which you keep, others you discard and some you treasure.

This is definitely one of the recipes that I don’t only treasure but more. By far this is one of my favorite recipes, which also could be made in a gluten-free version. This is the recipe that never failed me, whether I bake it in a professional oven or a simple house oven.
