Tuesday was Chocolate Cake Day. I bet you didn't know that. I only know it because I follow artist Sandra Boynton on Facebook and she said it was Chocolate Cake Day. Unfortunately, there just isn't a place, short of the Jewel grocery store, close to me where I can get a piece of chocolate cake. I refuse to set foot in Jewel. I don't like the store, really don't like it. So, I did without on Tuesday. Wednesday, however...
I had to go into the city to do inspections and, on the way back to the office, swung by Portillos for lunch specifically to get a piece of chocolate cake. I could make a cake similar to this. The moistness and density come from the addition to the recipe of mayonnaise. I won't use mayo for anything other than chocolate cake so it's not worth having a jar in my cupboard or fridge.
I'm okay with that. I'm not sure I'd make a lot of chocolate cakes and then, when I do make one, I would have to eat the whole thing which is, technically, not good for my waistline. I shall be content to swing by Portillos every now and again, because I don't really NEED a specific day to enjoy chocolate cake.
