When I think of childhood, I think of my great-grandmother’s french chocolate cake — le gâteau au chocolat de Mamie. Every year for my birthday my mom would ask me what kind of cake I wanted and every year, without fail, I asked for this specific cake. Its rich chocolate flavor never disappoints. To this day, no birthday seems complete without it. I truly hope you and yours enjoy and cherish this recipe as much as my family and I have over the years.
This cake is great on its own, lightly coated with powdered sugar, or served with vanilla ice cream and fresh berries.
