Triple Chocolate Cake


3 eggs
2 cups cake flour or all purpose flour (I like cake flour)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
3 oz. dark or bittersweet chocolate, grated

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a large bowl mix together flour, cocoa, soda, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.  In another large bowl cream butter until smooth.  Continue to cream adding sugar 1/2 cup at a time.  Start adding eggs one at a time to the butter mix.  Add 1/2 of the four mixture and whipping cream.  Mix until smooth.  Add remaining flour, milk and vanilla.  Fold in grated chocolate.  Pour into a angel food or bundt pan that's been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Drizzle:
1/2 cup white chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup cooking cream cheese

Mix together and spread over top of cake allowing to run down sides.  Sprinkle with chocolate (optional)

Comments:  If you like chocolate you can't help but love this cake.  It's full of chocolate and so moist that you can actually eat it with very few crumbs.  Changes can be to add a few finely chopped nuts to the batter or the drizzle.  You could also add a little coconut to the drizzle.
