3 stars as a regular chocolate cake; 4 stars as a chocolate tea cake
This is a chocolate tea cake, not very sweet and not suitable for a celebratory dessert. However, as a tea cake or a non-so-sweet chocolate cake, it's good.
We had some ganache from another recipe I made; topping the cake with the ganache, mascarpone whipped topping and a little ice cream was delicious. We did not top it with the pistachios.
Ingredients: flour, unsweetened cocoa, salted butter, baking powder, eggs, granulated sugar, whole milk, mascarpone, heavy cream, confectioners' sugar, chopped roasted unsalted pistachios
