This Chocolate Chip Dump Cake Might Be the Easiest Dessert Ever

  This Chocolate Chip Dump Cake Might Be the Easiest Dessert Ever This Chocolate Chip Dump Cake Might Be the Easiest Dessert EverThis chocolate chip cookie dough dump cake from Delicious Dump Cakes proves why dump cake recipes were so popular this year. It's a semihomemade dessert that allows you to use boxed cake mix and premade cookie dough (no shame), but tastes just as decadent and homemade as any chocolaty dessert. The recipe calls for chocolate pudding mix, milk, devil's food cake mix, and chocolate chip cookie dough, and the preparation is as easy as adding directly everything to a cake pan (that's where the "dumping" comes in!).

I’m in Portugal’s capital, in search of what has been described as the best chocolate cake in the world . “People come from all over the world to eat this. You can’t come to Lisbon and not try it — trust me,” says a local who I had met earlier that day.

Weaving through a maze of historic churches, stunning tiled pavements, and mosaic walls, I glance down at my phone before looking back up at street signs, trying to navigate my way through Lisbon’s winding roads. I’m in Portugal’s capital, in search of what has been described as the best chocolate cake in the world. “People come from all over the world to eat this. You can’t come to Lisbon and not try it — trust me,” says a local who I had met earlier that day. He had hastily typed step-by-step instructions on my phone for me to follow, and I’ve now finally found the store he’s urged me to come to.

  You're Going To Lose It Over The New M&M's Flavor You can only find them in one place.

Following countless requests of customers, feeling pressured, Chef Carlos Braz Lopez soon opened a small store in Lisbon , Portugal. Australia’s first shop for “ The Best Chocolate Cake in the World ” is exclusive to Warringah Mall on the Northern Beaches.

The cake at The Best Chocolate Cake in the World is more like a torte, the insanely sweet slices squat, many-layered affairs busy with mouse and meringue and cookie and ganache and Valrhona chocolate .

Lopes confesses that, back when he created the cake 15 years ago, he had very limited experience and skills in the complex field of pastries. But it was the cake’s texture that really set it apart, resulting in the subsequent worldwide acclaim and media attention. “The Best Chocolate Cake in the World” name is now known across the globe, with resellers in Spain, Brazil, the United States, Australia, and the UK. “The name just came when people that heard about the cake, but had not tried it, asked me if the cake was good. And for fun, I said, ‘It’s not good — it’s the best in the world,’ and suddenly this name became a success, as well as the most dangerous name we could give to any product.”

 

And he’s right. It’s a dangerous claim to make, with many chefs attempting to rival that title. But regardless of whether you agree with it being the best in the world, one thing’s for certain: This unusual chocolate creation will hit you with an incredibly unique textural experience that will challenge any bite of chocolate cake you’ve ever had.

In the Portuguese capital the shop is tiny with only a couple of tables where you can sit and allow your tastebuds to judge its supposed superlative quality.

We sell only one thing which is chocolate cake , and they say it's the best chocolate cake in the world , but it's up to the people who come and try it.

Princess Diana Encouraged William and Harry to Eat Surprisingly Normal Food .
One would imagine royals dining on fine china every day. Everything is extremely formal, with linens and courses served by butlers and maids, Downton Abbey-style. Well, former royal chef Darren McGrady is here to shatter those illusions. In a new interview with WWD, he says that Prince William and Prince Harry actually ate some more T.G.I.F.–style foods as children. Even more surprising, perhaps, is that it was at the request of their mother, Princess Diana. The young princes used to dine on “unhealthy food against their nanny’s wishes,” as McGrady reveals. WWD jokes that this could include pizza and loaded potato skins, although McGrady doesn't get into specifics (and fish and chips seem more likely, given that they live in England). “The Princess just wanted them to be boys,” he said. Their mother was an extremely healthy eater, eschewing red meats in favor of “chicken, fish, and vegetarian dishes.” As for the Queen, McGrady recently told Vanity Fair that she’s a major chocoholic. She dines on a sliver of chocolate biscuit cake every single day. The cake is made for her majesty at Buckingham Palace, and it travels with her. More: Kate Middleton's Best Looks of 2016 McGrady shared two additional pieces of insight about the Queen’s eating habits. “One is that she’s very disciplined,” eating four small meals a day. “For lunch, it would probably be something like grilled fish with some salad. She wouldn’t have potatoes.
