Y'all are going to LOVE this cake! L-O-V-E, love it! You have to promise me one thing, though. You have to promise to have at least ONE piece while it's still hot.
In fact, you should probably bake the cake while you are home alone, and then eat one small piece, or maybe 2, while it's still hot. Now that you've had some cake, you'll need a cover story for when your family gets home and wonders why
a piece of half the cake is missing. (I'm talking hypothetical, here…because I'd NEVER do something like that.)
You can tell them that some random neighbor stopped by while you were baking it and it'd be rude not to offer a piece of cake to your neighbor who smelled it baking. And it'd be EVEN ruder (is that a word?) not to enjoy a piece with your neighbor while drinking a cup of coffee. Of course, every good Southern girl is going to offer some cake to said neighbor's family, too. So, that's why half the cake is missing. (It's okay. I give you permission to use the above if you can't come up with one yourself.)
PS – You may want to wipe the chocolate off your mouth BEFORE the family gets home. Just sayin'.
