Chocolate Cake

Trust me this is a very smooth and moist chocolate cake and one important thing is, this cake is not very sweet. This cake is so heavenly, it will just tempt you to eat more. After eating 3 pieces i'm feeling very satisfied now but at the same time i'm feeling guilty too.
I think i need to go for a 3 hours workout and that might make me feel better. This chocolate cake is very delicious and easy to make. Try bake it yourself today.
