This right here is the best damned chocolate cake on the face of this earth, bar none. Rich, moist, fudgy, soft, and fluffy, Ms. Polly’s Chocolate Cake is just perfect. Perfect with coffee, perfect with milk, perfect for dessert, perfect for just about any occasion or any mood.
I discovered this little gem from a friend who brought one over a few years ago to a potluck party. I didn’t think much of it when I saw it, it was a little square chocolate cake in a simple brown box bought from a gasoline station. Meh, I thought. But as soon as I had a small bite, I was hooked.

On the whole, Polly’s Chocolate Cake is a cake with no frills. Two layers of spongy cake is separated by thick chocolate icing and then topped off with more of the same chocolate icing.
Typical? No, not really. The icing is thick and tastes of cocoa powder instead of your regular chocolate icing, it’s also not sugary sweet like most commercial cakes are. The cake is extra soft and moist and each bite seems to melt in your mouth.

All this time, I thought that this little piece of heaven on earth can only be bought at Shell Magallanes, where stocks are replenished every day and you can be sure that the cake you’ll get is fresh and moist. It turns out that they have branches in Robinsons Galleria and at the Comissary in Merville, where the prices are cheaper (compared to the one at Shell). They also now deliver to select locations via Quick Delivery.
FYI: The chocolate icing on this cake is particularly fantastic and because icing a weakness of mine, I usually hog cake corners in the thought that they’d have more icing than all other parts of the cake. It is interesting to note that with Polly’s Chocolate Cake, the middle slices have the thickest icing layer in between the cake layers. ~_~

- If I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
