Classic Chocolate Cake

The best classic chocolate cake (with recipe!) - A serious crowd pleaser!

I love cake! My husband's birthday was in December so I threw him a (successful) surprise birthday party!! He's a chocolate lover so I surprised him by baking the most epic chocolate cake (from Sally's Baking Addiction). Everyone loved the cake and was raving about it until the following day, which is always a good feeling! It's a classic triple chocolate cake with a milk chocolate frosting. I think the milk chocolate outside balances our the dark chocolate cake. This is a chocolate lover's dream - it's dark, chocolaty and moist, but I think the key is the brewed coffee because it gives it depth. You'd be crazy not to make this for a birthday, a special someone, entertaining guests or just because...because we can all use some cake every now and then!

I had mini chocolate chips on hand so decorated the sides with chocolate chips!

I'd love to know if you end up making this classic chocolate cake. Leave me a note in the comments below! 

The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies…Ever

These are the best oatmeal raisin cookies I've ever tasted…in my life! I know this is a big statement but I'm 100% prepared to back it up. I had read about these on Sally's blog and pinned it a while ago and had a craving last week so went in for the plunge. The cookies are soft and chewy and perfectly delicious. I think the little touch of the molasses and vanilla really take these cookies over the edge. I baked a batch to satisfy my craving but then couldn't stop eating them so took a bunch to work to let my co-workers judge for themselves and sure enough, they really were that good.
