Beatty's Chocolate Cake, Barefoot Bloggers September

When we taste most things we try, we say, " this is a keeper" or "not so good." After this cake, we said, "Oooh! This is really good!"

The Barefooot Bloggers late September recipe was Beatty's Chocolate Cake, from Barefoot Contessa At Home. Go here for the recipe.

This was a pretty straightforward recipe for a dark chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream frosting. The thing that makes it different, that makes it "over the top," is the undertone of coffee. This is moist, sweet and delicious! And complex-- lots going on there. This is definitely a keeper.

Gorgeous! I need to get some more really good chocolate and then I will make this again too!

I didn't realize that there was a Barefoot Bloggers group. I'd love to get in on that, but I'm just not sure I have time for one more thing! That chocolate cake looks like it might be worth it though.

Thanks, everybody. And you're welcome, Mel! I'm just glad I have folks to share these cakes and goodies with so I don't eat them all and ruin my "girlish figure!"
