One of the best parts of hosting these workshops is the opportunity to meet fellow bloggers. Katie of Dining at My Desk prepared the Portillo's Famous Chocolate Cake to our potluck and it was definitely a hit! Then again, who can resist chocolate cake anyway?!
Portillo's Chocolate Cake is famous around here because it's so rich, moist and so so good. It's a staple at the Portillo's restaurant chain and folks swear by it. So much so that they even request to have it mixed into their vanilla milkshakes for a 'Chocolate Cake Shake.' So what's the secret to this famous cake? Would you believe me if I said it was mayonnaise?
I was surprised how easy it was to prepare, so if you've got a special chocoholic to impress (Valentine's Day is coming up soon, you know...) this is the cake to make! Here's the ingredient list and be sure to get the rest of the recipe and directions over at Katie's blog - Dining at My Desk!
