Caprese chocolate cake 1

Many people have preconceived notions about caprese because they think it is a dry sweet, nothing more false! the Capri is soft and moist, not dry;) The caprese cake for me it has a sentimental value, it is the first cake I made all by myself thanks to the recipe given to me by my friend Peppe chef who "initiated me to the kitchen."
