Thanks fifi! I might have tried that years ago but always worth another shot!
Is anyone a Friends fan? This reminds me of that episode where Monica is trying to duplicate the recipe for Phoebe's grandma's wonderful chocolate chip cookie recipe based off the one remaining cookie.

You are welcome. When you described the appearance, and said it was moist, that was the first thing I thought of. It is one of the darkest cakes I have ever seen.


Goldy, I had forgotten about that episode. Haha. It was a good one.

I like flour-less (or almost) chocolate cakes. There's one I made a few weeks ago that had 1 tablespoon of flour and it was amazing.

Pound cake is another favorite. I guess I just like really dense cakes in general.

Traditional Dominican cake without the frosting is awesome, but I only like dulce de leche filling (I hate fruit filling).

Pound cakes are fantastic. Plain, cream cheese, chocolate, butter nut... My childhood baby sitter would reward me with a slice of poundcake, cut into little squares, after I practiced tying my shoes. 33 years later and I still cut my pound cake into little squares before I eat it.

Personally, I prefer four leeches on my cake.

I guess I've never thought about this a whole lot before...

If I'm being totally honest, I'll eat just about any cake. Except for carrot cake. *gag* Or anything with a jam in the middle. Omg. Ew. I was so annoyed when I realized my brother's wedding cake had raspberry jam in the middle. RUINED, I tell you! Not even the white chocolate shavings on it made up for this!

But if I'm getting specific, I do love a good flour-less chocolate cake, like legends mentioned. I made this one a year or two ago that was just straight up delicious... I might need to try it again.

I've been liking pound cake lately, too. Like, I could so go for a slice of marble pound cake right about now! Yum!

But like I said... Just about any cake is fine by me.

Cake is only okay, but I'll eat cheapo buttercream frosting all day long. Viva la Walmart bakery!

Chocolate pudding cake.

I can always eat that so it's probably one of my favorites.

This isn't it. (From an acquaintances FB page. Apparently she served it at her Super Bowl party.

I have no clue. I know nothing about football or the players either.

Does a petit four count as a cake? I refer to them as tiny bits of cakey heaven, but don't know if they really count.


I don't like most cakes in general - they're just not my thing.

I do agree with this, though! I especially love a really buttery-seeming pound cake, and I'll enjoy a cake more if it has jam than if not, at least, though still not a huge fan.

I also love ice cream cakes which I'm hesitant to count as cake, since they're mostly ice cream formed into the shape of a cake. I'm really more a pie girl because I tend to prefer fruit and dairy (cheesecake, good apple pies, key lime) to just loads of sugar. I think most of the cakes I would like are the ones I am allergic to - the ones which are more spicy tend to have allspice which I am allergic to, and I'm allergic to alcohol which can also help lessen the sweetness issues.

Ray Lewis from the Ravens. He's been their star player for a while and very vocal.

When he was in Atlanta in 2000 during the superbowl, two people were stabbed to death and from what I've read he was the murderer but somehow got off the hook.
