On the weekend we were invited over to a friend’s place for a pot roast dinner. I didn’t want to arrive empty handed, so I made Molly Wizenberg’s Winning Hearts and Minds Cake. It only has a few ingredients (chocolate, eggs, butter, sugar, and a smidge of flour and salt) and it’s actually pretty close my family’s winning brownie recipe. Both come together quickly and are very tasty. That must be why I really like it!
Although it definitely came in second after the host’s delicious roast, it was still a winner among friends. This cake is sooo easy to make and has one of the highest deliciousness to effort involved ratios of any baked good I know. It’s a pretty foolproof recipe to try if you feel intimidated by baking. The only things you might mess up would be adding the chocolate mix to the eggs when it’s still too hot (you might cook the eggs!) or not cooking it the right length of time.
Here‘s the recipe again in case you missed it above!
