Dessert Recipe // Black Bottom Cake


* Recipe by guest contributor Laney Schwartz, creator of Life is But a Dish

We did it!

And by we, I mean you. Life is but a Dish reached 1,000 likes on facebook! Thank you times a million for your continued support, desire to stuff your face, and willingness to read my rants!

Now onto this Black Bottom Cake.


When I hear the word celebrate, my brain immediately goes to chocolate cake. So what better way to celebrate 1,000 likes than with this chocolatey, decedent, lighter than air, surprise creamcheesey chocolate chip filling chocolate cake. Yes, I realize I said chocolate four times in those last two sentences.

Sue me.

I can remember like yesterday my very first Life is but a Dish facebook post. Just 6 months ago! I had ZERO likes and I kept posting pictures before I told anyone about the blog. I was too afraid to share my recipes, pictures, and inner rambles with you. And now there are over 1,000 of you who “like” me (blushing).


I’m so grateful because without you, Life is but a Dish is nothing! Literally! You allow me to do and share what I love most, and there’s nobody I’d rather share it with than 1,000 strangers.

Yes, strangers! I LOVE that my recipes are being spread all over, and hopefully make people feel confident and excited to cook. This is why I do what I do! Because of you!


But mainly because of you.

I really wanted the 1,000 mark celebratory recipe to be special and so, well… Decide for yourself.

I like you too.
