With Sam's parents and sister visiting, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try the Meringue Crusted Chocolate Cake again. After my last disaster I felt like needed to redeem myself, so I carefully followed the recipe (with the exception of adding splash of vanilla - I need a bit of leeway). I refrained from adding an extra egg white for more meringue - I guess more isn't always better. Also - this might be the big one - I didn't turn off the oven mid-way through baking because, although I am not an expert, I really think that might have had something to do with the sides creeping up out of the pan as though they were so horrified with what I had done they decided to run away. So, without further ado - I present the less frightening looking Meringue Crusted Chocolate Cake. Give it a try.
