Chocolate Decadence Cake

This cake was a blessing in disguise. We used a recipe from Baking Bites Chocolate Cake and modified it with less baking powder, by accident, and no egg. Needless to say, the cake did not rise as we had hoped. In the midst of being distressed at our "flat" cake, we iced it regardless with lots of chocolate ganache. After bringing it to the birthday girl, we sampled the cake with caution not knowing if it would hold up to our normal standards. To our relief, the cake was marvelously decadent. I'd definitely make it again the same way. No eggs and not enough baking powder. Here's to not following directions!!
