"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Tasty Tuesday: World's Best Chocolate Cake

Hey y'all...I have to share this recipe with you. I found a recipe a while back and tweaked it here and there to come up with this...

World's Best Chocolate Cake
3 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/3 cups boiling super hot water

Honestly, the original recipe looked like it would be super finicky. It had you mixing things one at a time and using different bowls. It was a pain in the ass. Just for giggles,  I decided to try the dump it all in a bowl and mix it method. Guess what? It worked. The cake was so moist and delicious. It turned out perfectly. Bake in two greased and floured 9 in pans at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

Sorry I don't have any pictures. I'll be using this recipe for Gabe and T's cakes for this weekend and I'll be sure to get pictures then.
