1/2 Photos of Romano's Macaroni Grill Chocolate Cake Recipe
This information was found at the About.com website, cooking for kids:http://kidscooking.about.com/od/desserts/r/macgrillchoccak.htm The first time I tried the Macaroni Grill chocolate cake, I immediately wanted the recipe. It is moist on the inside with a decadent chocolate ganache topping, then it is finished off with chopped walnuts. Although I'm told the authentic Macaroni Grill chocolate cake recipe calls for coffee, I wanted to make a version for the kids. So this smothered chocolate cake recipe uses buttermilk in place of the coffee.
