Chocolate Cake Recipe

Chocolate Cake

You know what? Valentines day is around the corner and guess what i have come up with something as sweet as your lover, the problem i have is i can't give it to my lover, because if i do my wife will kill me, just kidding. I always wanted to write a bit of true history of chocolate because i have had lots of arguments over who invented chocolate, some people say that a man called Dr. James Baker discovered it in 18th century and some would say Sam German discovered in 19th century, well these two gentlemen discovered how to make chocolate cake. The Maya civilization were treating themselves with chocolate way before these these gentlemen and if i am not wrong i think i read somewhere that Maya were growing cocoa around 250 AD. The Greeks enjoyed cheese cakes, The Roman loved their cakes made with honey, butter and eggs.
