"best chocolate cake in the world"
just opened on 83rd and Madison. are they kidding? it is not cake, and does not even taste like chocolate. mousse cake maybe, and then, far from the best.
Quaint digs . too bad. I crave chocolate cake.
(thanks to my nana for her cake). NYC does not have a decent dark tasting chocolate cake . (okay Maison du Chocolate),most I've had are bland with little chocolate flavor, too sweet, or chocolate chips to boost it.
A shop called Taylors, made an exquisite brownie.They closed years ago, Anybody know of it?
Somebody please help me find a real chocolate cake, not mousse, not flourless.
Have you tried the Strip House cake with all the layers? That might also be too sweet for you, but it's a damn good chocolate cake.
Taylors brownies were incredible ...but they were brownies. Really rich, and moist brownies, but your mention of them would have had me thinking you were after a flourless chocolate cake. You might like the brownie at Bruno's just as an aside. Rocco's too.
You might try a search for previous suggestions of Black Forrest cake, or German Chocolate Cake (Black Hound makes a mini version that should hit the spot). The Amy's suggestion was also good for Chocolate Cake.
There's also Junior's, and all the bakeries like Billy's, Buttercup, Little Cupcake Bakeshop, Sugar Sweet Sunshine, and even some of the old Italian bakeries.
Sugar Sweet Sunshine
126 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002
13 E 12th St, New York, NY 10003
Can you pinpoint some of the differences? The only thing you've compared it to was a moist, but crumbly bittersweet brownie that was moreof a good pure chocolate taste than sugary. I don't remember Taylor's brownie being overly sweet either, just satisfying.
The old fashioned style bakeshops that specialize in cupcakes are making classic recipes. They may be lacking in butter, or texture, but they are essentially using old grandmother type recipes.
In my opinion, the best chocolate cakes in NYC are to be found at Cafe Sabarsky.
Klimttorte - chocolate and hazelnut cake
Sabarskytorte - chocolate and rum cake
Rehrücken - chocolate marzipan cake with house made orange confiture
