Dark Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cakes are probably the queens of all cakes. I want to share with you my favorite recipe for a rich dark chocolate cake. It is succulent and super soft on the inside, topped with a delicious peanut butter icing, this is the perfect treat for any sweet tooth with a chocolate heart.
