With a presence as large as its namesake state, this humble, easy-to-prepare cake made it all the way to the finals for our best chocolate recipe bake-off. Since it first appeared in the magazine 12 years ago, it's been a staff and reader favorite. This recipe uses butter and buttermilk in quantities that give it the right indulgently moist texture and rich flavor, but keep a serving's fat at just 10 grams and calories at about 300.
Det landet trenger aller mest nå er politikere som tar ansvar. At 22. juli ikke brukes i et kynisk spill om makt. Alle har et ansvar for å lege sårene etter det verste angrepet Norge har opplevd etter den andre verdenskrig. Kommisjonen har gjort sitt. Domstolene har gjort sitt. Nå bør pressen og politikerne, både regjeringen og opposisjonen, vise ansvar.
Somehow, Texas claimed the sheet cake as its own in the mid-20th century, perhaps because of the pecans, an ingredient that grows in abundance throughout the Lone Star State. The defining element is its shape--and, of course, the icing, which has to be heated and poured on the warm, just-out-of-the-oven cake. The result is a rich, chocolaty treat that's iconic in Texas.
We took the traditional pound cake recipe and raised it a stunning, triple-chocolate twist. This cake means business. A duo of glazes—one creamy chocolate, the other subtle buttermilk—comes together atop this dreamy confection. It’s indulgent and, we admit, so much fun to eat and serve. Chocolate enthusiasts will be over the moon for this recipe, but it has enough unexpected flavor—thanks to the addition of the buttermilk glaze—that you’ll also win over the harder-to-please dessert eaters at the table. Warning: You—and they—won’t be able to resist a second slice. Go for it. We won’t tell.
You know those desserts that make everyone go “Wow!” when they bite into it? This is one of those desserts. It will be hard to have just one bite of this decadent dessert.

With a thick dusting of powdered sugar, it mixes substantial chocolate with a delightful, dainty presentation on the plate. For chocoholics, this one can’t be beat, and the fun liquid center gives added dimension to a moist, spongy exterior. Even the cook will have a hard time believing these take less than 45 minutes to assemble and bake.
