3 Excellent slices of chocolate cake in London

Seeing as I spend most of my life talking about food (case in point), it makes sense that some of that would spill over into this blog. Behold, the best chocolate cake offerings in London!

You can rest assured that I've done some pretty extensive research on the subject, however if you think you know a better option, by all means leave a comment. I will take it upon myself to go try your chocolate cake suggestion out to see how it compares, for science.

Traditional Chocolate Buttercream Sponge, High Tea of Highgate

This looks and tastes like the party cake of your youth. Served in outrageous slices and resplendent with edible glitter and confetti, you can easily share this with a friend (but you probably won't want to). From £2.95 a slice.

High Tea of Highgate, 50 Highgate High Street, Highgate Village, N6 5HX

Flourless Chocolate Cake, GAIL'S

I don't have a photo of this one because it never lasts long enough to pose for a shot, but you don't need an image to be able to imagine the decadent, dense, dark chocolateyness of this cake. Not suitable for nut allergy sufferers (so little is!). From £2.70 a slice.

GAIL's, scattered around London, check out their website for branches.

Muriel's Chocolate Cake, Muriel's Kitchen

The most indulgent of the lot, this cake is very similar to what I imagine a Brooklyn Blackout Cake to be, in that it involves a rich, dark, gooey chocolate sponge, a chocolate custard/ganache filling, and a topping of yet more chocolate sponge crumbs. It doesn't get better than that. This one is definitely for sharing, even by the most seasoned of chocaholics. Around £4.50 a slice, if memory serves (faculties were impaired by chocolate -induced coma).

Muriel's Kitchen, 1-3 Pelham Street, South Kensington, SW7 2ND.
