Marinella's of Toronto famous chocolate cake help?

Idas | Oct 6, 202001:48 PM    

I loved Marinella's Restaurant on College St, their food was amazing and really the ONLY place I would order chocolate cake outside of the cupcake shoppe. They sadly closed during covide and I'm dying for the home made "Olive Oil Chocolate Cake" It had just the right balance of chocolate, not sickly sweet, not dense at all. Icing light as was the cake in texture. I suspect that they also added coffee for the depth of the cake flavour. I would love it if anyone had a guess at the recipe. I hacked one today that was pretty close but I can't get a rich chocolate cake to rise fluffy yet... Any copycat success out there covid baking? thanks sooo much!
