Do you know those days were you just get up craving some sugar? on sunday I had one of those, and I didn’t have anything at home that could help me with those cravings, so I decided I would make me something 😀 Pinterest was in my case not that helpful, because the more I looked the more the cravings grew. So I just looked inside of my very poor sunday fridge and my sad pantry, and then it came to me! Chocolate cake!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did and still do 😛
