Don’t get us wrong: Valentine’s Day is great. Except when it’s really, really not. So if you are looking forward to 24 hours of bon-bons, foot rubs and champagne sipped out of matching monogrammed flutes, well, we’re happy for you. Really. But for the rest of us, love is hard. Dump cakes are easy. You do the math.
This cake will never forget your birthday. This cake will notice that you ate two vegan meals in a row. This cake understands the importance of hanging the dishrag over the kitchen faucet. This cake is perfect.
For all the times that love has left you shaken vs. stirred, a no-stir dessert that’s truly at its best eaten directly from the pan. Because that way, it’s only one piece, no matter how much you eat.
If you’re in need of a… shall we say… distraction, here it comes with whipped cream on top. Every bite is a little bit of the loveable, wonderful you being rebuilt. We promise.
Yasssss. The salt in your tears will be completely canceled out by the glorious, gooey therapy of chocolate, caramel and more chocolate.
That pan in front of you doesn’t just hold one of the most luscious, soul-saving cakes you might ever eat. It is also jam-packed with 100% of your daily-recommended allowance of Everything-is-gonna-be-alright. Thank goodness.
