As a result, in an attempt to streamline things and allow me more time for my bigger/crafty/decor posts, I have decided to eliminate my meal plan posts. However! Since I absolutely love cooking I will instead be replacing these posts with a featured recipe every Sunday! The great thing about this is it will also allow me to share some of my favourite baking recipes because I sure do love baking! Almost more than cooking even! I will note that if you did happen to love and always follow my meal plans please, please leave me a comment below and let me know! Your opinions greatly matter to me! :)
So in an attempt to switch things up I'll be featuring my latest love...the most perfect, divine chocolate cake recipe in all the world. You see, my favourite dessert of all time is black forest cake.

Que in, I Am Baker.
This lady always creates amazing cakes, cupcakes, and other desserts with the most beautiful of designs and blogs about it. I'm still not sure how I stumbled upon her blog but my life has been blessed by amazing cakes ever since. The first time I tried one of her recipes it was in an attempt to find the perfect white cake for my daughter's first birthday party and this recipe reined supreme. They were better than any store-bought cupcakes I have ever tasted. They were light, airy, full of flavor, in a word - divine. They were quite the hit at Anna's party!
As a result, although I'm not sure why it has taken me this long, I figured if she had the perfect white cake recipe surely she must have a good chocolate cake recipe. Cue the trumpets. Enter in the "Best Chocolate Cake" decked out in a robe and wearing a tiara with a million diamonds. Yes, it is THAT good.

Now that I have found my holy grail I am going to make an attempt at recreating that cherry filling. I have a suspicion if I take a jar of maraschino cherries and saucify it with cornstarch it could possibly come close. I have my fingers crossed!
Does anyone else have a recipe that is the holy grail to them? Or some sort of dessert/recipe you have found you can only get at a restaurant or store that you so desperately wish to recreate? Tell me about it!
