Everyone should have a go-to-cake. By go-to-cake I mean a cake you can whip up on short notice and that always taste great. This chocolate cake is just that, super easy, fast and yummy. Try it, it might become your cake as well. The heart on top is just make with a heart cut of paper and placed on top of the cake. Then sift some powdered sugar on top and gently remove the paper.
