Gateau au chocolat moelleux (French)
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe is of a soft centered Chocolate cake (moelleux meaning soft and smooth in French) that comes from France.
The first time I tried it, it was homemade in the countryside of France by my husband's family and it was simply delicious! I would like to share it as it is easy to make and it is a very nice cake to bake for the family.
