Super Moist Chocolate Cake with Nutella Ganache

One bowl , Easy to Whip , No mixer super easy chocolate cake

Baking is a therapy to heal the soul. I truly believe in that. Whenever I feel low baking makes me feel so better. On days u feel very low but still lazy to bake something , this recipe comes handy to heal you as well as satisfy your cravings.

Chocolate is always love. Flavor love and love and love only…. I baked this cake for my kids who were craving something chocolatey and I whipped it up in just 5 mins because all the ingredients are easily available at home. This chocolate is so moist and it remains the same for 2 days in room temperature. I personally felt the cake becomes extra moist the next day.
