Easy French Chocolate Cake

fall means baking for me. Fall means warm cake, coffee and cozy weekends. That’s why today I’m sharing the most easy and delicate chocolate cake you can make. The French moelleux au chocolat means a very soft and rich chocolate cake. It’s the same ingredients and way to make a lava cake the difference is that you bake longer this cake. It made of a real chocolate no cocoa here. You will need to use some techniques such as Bain Mari or water bath to melt the chocolate and the butter. I will explain that quickly because the steps are very simple if you follow them correctly. Also I’m sure you can melt the butter and the chocolate in the microwave just do it by 30 seconds each time until it’s completely melted otherwise it can burn.

for more interesting decoration, sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top just to give it this festive look or add some half walnuts for a fall look.

this cake can be on your thanksgiving baking list why not?!
