Fudgey Rich Chocolate Cake
This chocolate cake is my son's favorite and is something to die for. I have baked this cake back to back 3 times in a row and it has still managed to retain the top position. It is a soft, fudgey and rich enough in chocolate to satiate the chocolate crazy palettes. I have included the coffee to enhance the intensity and have reduced the sugar. As this cake does not call for any frosting, it can be prepared in a jiffy. Go on and indulge !
