About Me!

Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name is Anna Kosti and I am 18 years old. I live in Larnaca, Cyprus, with my family and I am still going to high school. I fell in love with baking since the age of 9! I started with simple recipes to making complicated and fascinating desserts. I am planning to join university next year, overseas, to become a professional pastry chef.

This Chocolate Cake is one of the most delicious and moist cakes you’ve ever tried! It’s simple, quick and filled with chocolate flavour!

It’s topped with a rich chocolate ganache and its best served hot! It needs just few simple ingredients that everyone has in their pantry.

You can also decorate it however you want like add some American buttercream or even white chocolate ganache!

This cake is best served directly and especially with some vanilla ice cream on the side.

You can store it in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap in the fridge or at room temperature in a cool spot! It lasts for about 5 days.
