If chocolate cake is your go-to dessert, you'll be thrilled to know that Sunday, January 27 is National Chocolate Cake Day.
According to The Learning Channel (TLC), chocolate cake is America’s second overall favorite dessert, with fudge coming in first place. But fudge is really a confection, a candy if you will, not a dessert.
When looking for a satisfying slab of chocolate cake any day of the week, consider Benny’s Chop House. Benny’s pastry chef, Aaron Lindgren, likens his chocolate cake to the one originally created by his grandmother, Flo. “Our chocolate cake is made from scratch, using a non-traditional devil’s food cake recipe. Cocoa is heated with vanilla bean and water before adding it to the cake batter. The result, he says, is the richest, luscious, and most delicious chocolate cake. Presented as a hearty three layer slice, it’s topped with a rich sour cream frosting made by blending the finest French and American chocolates - Valrhona and Guittard; it’s impossible to pass up. It’s heaven for chocolate lovers.”
On Friday, January 25, enjoy Benny’ American cuisine, specialty cocktails and a bottle of wine from Benny’s Wine Spectator “Award of Excellence” recognized 1,500 bottle list. Savor your meal in the comfortable dining room or enjoy dinner in the swank Bar Lounge, and enjoy live jazz (every Wednesday through Saturday) 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. And don’t forget to save room for Benny’s Chocolate Layer Cake.
