We're sure you've heard of-and tried-Wildflour's Salted Chocolate Cake. It's been a constant on many Top-10 Chocolate Cake lists, thanks to its genuine chocolate flavor and welcome hint of sea salt. It remains a favorite to this day, for sure, but there are times when you just crave something a little more classic. Guess what: they make yet another kind of chocolate cake-one that's more on the no-frills, homey side, just like what grandma used to make. It's called the Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake, and you've got to add it to your must-order list whenever you're dining at Wildflour!

The Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake (P1,200/mini cake, P1,900/whole cake) is as its name says-Wildflour's take on the old-fashioned style of chocolate cake, with layers of chocolate cake, a coffee-custard filling, and silky chocolate fudge frosting. Don't let its seeming simplicity fool you: this is one excellent rendition. It's got an especially deep and dark chocolate flavor and uber-moist cake base with an open, fluffy crumb, and the coffee custard adds just enough moisture and depth to bring out the flavor of the chocolate. This is a great example of a classic done well; one that we believe will stand the test of time.
