Chocolate Jasmine Cake {Recipe}

We’re not talking about a Princess Jasmine cake (mom reference, you may not understand), we’re talking the actual Jasmine – the flavor beyond all flavors that melds so beautifully when paired with chocolate.  You’ll experience this light flavor once the chocolate subsides.  It’s heavenly.

Our recipe today comes from Roka Akors Pastry Chef Jesse Divine.  And with a name like “Divine” it has to be good.
