Triple Chocolate Bonk

Heading out to a friend's house to see some out-of-towners, Meredith was asked to bring something with chocolate. Meredith understood this as a chance to break out her fancy-pants bundt pan.

Her first attempt didn't fare well. Well, not as a bunt, at least. It was crispy on the outside and dense chocolate on the inside, and it fell apart when it came out of the pan. That one stayed home and was shared with the neighbours who like chocolaty disasters as much as I do.

The second attempt (using a different recipe) turned out much better.

  1. What a fantastic name for a cake, love it! Glad to hear that the first cake was still eaten, despite it falling apart, I don't like to hear about chocolate getting wasted now.
