January 27th is National chocolate cake day!  According to National Day Calendar website and the Dover Post, the chocolate cake was born in 1765 when a doctor and a chocolate maker teamed up in an old mill.  I hate to admit it, but I don't think I could count how many pieces of chocolate I've eaten through the course of me life.  I'd just say it's a lot.

I guess I would pick German Chocolate cake as my favorite, second choice would be my family's recipe of chocolate caramel cake. I will note that when I order at Boston Market I always get a piece of their dark chocolate cake for dessert, it's so good.

Here's the recipe for the best ever chocolate cake from add a pinch.  Let's hope we all get chocolate cake on Saturday, January 27th to celebrate! #Nationalchocolatecakeday
