The Last Piece of Chocolate Cake

What is a piece of chocolate cake on a messy plate, on a saucer that is, doing in a style blog? Take a closer look and see it for yourself. When making your favorite chocolate cake recipe, you want to use good quality chocolate for such a result. It doesn't have to be the most expensive brand name you buy. If you use 70% dark chocolate, your cake will be heavy and luscious. It will keep for weeks in the fridge.

This is a failed attempt to take a lizard's eye view shot. It's turned out to be more like a lizard's eye level shot.

I wanted to take one last look. I did. And then, I wanted to take one last bite. I did that, too. It's gone now.

Gu├írdame un pedazo de pastel, por favor.

The top is thrifted. The red thing is a handmade choker. It's made from scrap fabric found in my sewing box. Buddy almost choked on a piece of walnut cake this morning. No, he wasn't wearing my choker.

Here is the culprit:

I was inspired by reading A. Christie: "The Sittaford Mystery" to make a coffee cake. Mrs. Christie did not supply a recipe, but I'd found one here: sour cream coffee cake.

This is actually a perfectly harmless coffee cake.
