Chocolate cake doesn’t have to be special. Doesn’t have to be frosted. Doesn’t have to be only for a special occasion. Oh Lady Cakes has a great Chocolate Espresso Cake recipe I knew I had to make for the coffee fiend in my life.

This cake has both coffee and espresso for an extra kick. And tofu. Don’t let it bother you, it just really adds to the moistness which is a plus. I would have used chocolate almond milk if I had some, but honestly the recipe is good as is. It really has a coffee kick.

So chocolate cake on a weekday, just because? Hell yes. There’s always an excuse, and I’m the queen of finding the perfect excuse for cake!
