Chocolate Chip Surprise Cake

Mike Truese

The gentle saute process caramelizes onion, making it sweet. The cake has no onion flavor, yet is rich, dense and extremely moist. Sweet onions are essential to the success of this recipe. Do not substitute standard yellow cooking (storage) onions. If you absolutely cannot bear the thought of a cake with onions, you may omit them and still have a deliciously rich and moist double chocolate cake.
