Chocolate Cake is All Alike (Pretty Much)

I don't know where this mindset came from, that I have to seek out and eat every permutation of chocolate cake on the planet. I've come to the conclusion recently that essentially chocolate cake is all pretty much the same. Some is more moist, sometimes it has nuts or fruit or coconut or caramel or is more chocolatey. Or it has a creamier ganache frosting.

But at heart, it's all alike. And I've been eating it for 55 years, so I think by now I've eaten it in just about every version possible. There's no need to keep trying it to see how this one is, or how that one is. There are lots of other foods on my bucket list that are way ahead of chocolate cake.

And even if there is some wicked great version that I've never tried, it will all still be there when I'm thinner.

And by the way, if I can resist chocolate cake, all you chocolate chip cookies out there don't stand a chance. Don't even bother tempting me.


  1. Oh, chocolate cake, how I love thee, let me count the ways. I had a friend who swore up and down that her chocolate zucchini cake was actually a health food since it contained a vegetable. Oh, how I wish she was right, lol, we could all eat cake for every meal with the added bonus of using up all the zucchinis in the gardens across America.

    Oh, let's not get started with the cookies, Alison...unless we can find a new Magical Zucchini recipe for them, too!

  2. Oooh I love it! I once gave up cheeseburgers--I was allowed 1 a month, and as it turned out--I would forget for at least a week past that month and now? I rarely have a cheese burger!
    Think of all the cakes you can make with your own eggs?

  3. Sounds like good reasoning to me, except that you've now got me hankering after a piece of chocolate cake!


Some encouragement from readers would be most "egg"cellent!
