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 you need a noodle fix, opt for soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and contain more fiber and protein than your regular noodles. It’s also high in a slew of vitamins and minerals that you won’t get from your regular noodles. #happyhealthyawesome #alternative #buckwheat #soba #japanesefood #BTMeats - June 26, 2017
- If you’re in the mood for a sweet but healthy treat, chia pudding is always a good choice. I always have a jar of pre-soaked chia ready for snacking in the fridge. Today, I added chopped up strawberries, topped it with almond flakes, and sprinkled on some Stevia and cinnamon on top. #happyhealthyawesome #chiapudding #chiaph #sweettooth - June 22, 2017
- Today’s big breakfast is a Keto-friendly BLTEA sandwich. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and an egg in a freshly-baked almond flour bun. Believe it or not, all of it took just 15 minutes to make. Including the bun. #happyhealthyawesome #keto #highfatlowcarb #quickhealthymeals - June 22, 2017
