easy and tasty chocolate cake

chocolate cake with sprinkles

I found this chocolate cake in a Facebook group, and just by seeing how it looks
i really had to make it.
The cake itself is quite dry, but with the chocolate cream on top it's so delicious and rich.
This cake is really easy to prepare and you can make it in no time.
If you decide to bake this batter in a large oven pan, then you'll have a lower cake but
plenty of slices to everyone :-) .
I stored the cake in the pan I've baked it and covered it with aluminum foil and left it outside of the fridge. The cake was really delicious and lasted for 5 days, before someone took
the last piece.
