Chocolate Mud Cake (07 / 50)

This is a really easy recipe for a deliciously dense chocolate mud cake. I paired the cake with a dark chocolate ganache, but I didn’t make enough ganache and so I only had enough for the filling. It was pretty nice at room temperature, but phenomenal warmed up in the microwave for 20 seconds with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
