33 Years Later,
Silver Palate Cookbook’s Decadent Chocolate Cake Recipe Is
Still Front Page News!
On Sunday morning, when I first received an
email saying this classic chocolate cake recipe was on the
front page of the digital New York Times, I thought I was
being spoofed. Perhaps my friend was still participating in
Halloween's trickery? But, the emails kept coming. I decided
to take a look and there it was! The Silver Palate
Cookbook’s Decadent Chocolate Cake.
I immediately flashed back to
1982 when The Silver Palate Cookbook was originally
published. The title of this particular recipe created quite a
stir in the cookbook world . . . people thought use of the
word "decadent" was rather scandalous. Oh, how far we’ve come!
It's both fun and rewarding
to know that even in today’s sophisticated food scene this
classic recipe is still being honored. The reason this cake
has continued to be so popular is that it's such a light moist
cake because of the sour cream. Today I like dark chocolate
best and make the frosting with Ghirardelli 60% Bittersweet
chocolate. Even more decadent!
Simple to put together and
always pleasing, this chocolate cake is sure to become a
favorite amongst all your family and friends.
HERE for the recipe . . .
