Ready to get dirty? The perfect recipe for a muddy chocolate experience.

We all love chocolate. I refuse to believe otherwise.
Maybe some of us like dark bitter chocolate. Maybe others prefer a lighter milky sweetness. Maybe you are the white type of chocolate person. And maybe you like it nutty.
Regardless your particular preference I would like to assume you like chocolate.
And if you indeed like chocolate.. you got to like chocolate mud cakes.

I have been looking for ages for the perfect chocolate mud cake. Sweet and at the same time bitter, moist but not wet.
I knew exactly the right shade of chocolate color and the texture but somehow it was always quite not right!

But after about a year experimenting with TS Table Spoons.. I came across a Eureka moment.
I guess I had given up on the thought of actually perfecting the chocolate mud cake recipe of my grandmother.
Sometimes, with the passing of time, we tend to forget details of things. A mere generalization of feeling, aromas and colors is whats left behind and the rest of the story tends to be filled up by a very conscious consciousness.
That is the reason I decided to abandon the effort and merely accept faith and just mix the written analogies in order to achieve the mediocre certainty of a nice chocolate mud cake.
Yet, as i tripped over, fate had it, my flour bowl turned and a few of its precious powder content flew up in the air.
To make along story short, I ended up with about 2TS less flour… which brought me to the most delicious chocolate cake recipe!
