"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
This is an absolute Powell family favorite. Not only do I have to make it for each of my kids' birthdays, I now have to make it for their friends on THEIR birthdays! Originally named "Chocolate Eclair Cake", it changed when Jack Powell had his first taste at around age 4. "Mom, do they call this "Chocolate Declare Cake" because everyone declares it is so good?". The name stuck...and we do declare that it is the best cake ever!
