Experimentation in the kitchen is booming, with unique new recipes being created every day. Whether it's the cooking method that's unusual or the ingredients, there's always something new to discover, including this neat recipe that combines olive oil with cake. This Wet Chocolate Cake with Olive Oil, created by Cat Cora's Kitchen by Gaea, is a light alternative to assuage that sweet tooth and seems pretty easy to make too.

A world renowned chef, Cat Cora's career was given a boost as the first and only female Iron Chef on Food Network's Iron Chef America. Having appeared in numerous shows, Cora has a wide range of cookware, food and wine, books, and recipes available on her personal website. She's also transferred her skills into restaurants, opening Kouzzine at Disneyworld, CCQ in Costa Mesa, California, and Cat Cora's Kitchen in Houston and San Francisco airports.

This is perhaps the worst chocolate dessert recipe ever created. Apparently the Gaea oilve oil people invented it to sell a million bottles of Cat Cora branded oil. In a shameful waste of expensive chocolate, olive oil, and time you will create the most inedible brown brick you've ever made. I've got to believe that Cat Cora never tasted this train wreck of a recipe or her name wouldn't be on it.
