Pound of Chocolate Cake
Happy Birthday Audrey Hepburn!
Chocolate cake can make any day of the week better, but especially this cake. I have heard that one of my favorite actresses, Audrey Hepburn loved chocolate cake and this is the one I would have served to her. But this cake is so simple you will not need to wait for a celebration. The original recipe did not include almonds for decorating, but I dropped a utensil on the cake so the almonds worked out well.
