1. Salted caramel chocolate ganache at Jaslyn Cakes

Restaurants Bangsar

Jaslyn Rangson can do many mouthwatering things with chocolate – brownies, chocolate and salted caramel tarts, and peanut butter chocolate cake. But the salted caramel chocolate ganache cake takes the, uh, cake. Four layers of fluffy, thick chocolate cake, sandwiched with salted caramel chocolate ganache, finished with a shiny, smooth coating of chocolate ganache. It’s sticky, sweet, salty, and all whipped up from a big bowl of 70 percent chocolate, Maldon sea salt flakes and organic flour. Unless it’s your lucky day, you won’t find this cake by the slice at the counter spread; it’s such a decadent mess that Jaslyn only bakes it to order, but who says you can’t have your (whole) cake and eat it too?

RM82 per cake, RM15 per slice

3. Classic Chocolate Cake at Ben's Bake Shop

Restaurants Cafés Solaris Dutamas

Sweet dreams are made of this: moist chocolate cake glossed with decadent, melting chocolate ganache, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Best enjoyed between groans of satisfaction and sips of tea.

4. Valrhona chocolate cake at Swich Café

Restaurants Cafés Solaris Dutamas

It’s light enough to have post-dinner (it’s anytime for us at TOKL), but also rich and indulgent enough to hold its own at the party table. If your first date was sweet, unforgettable and awash with sudden rushes of giddiness, that’s how we also feel about this Swich bestseller. There's an updated version of this cake as well, now with salted caramel added to the rich chocolate.

Whole cake from RM80.

5. Lé Trianon

Restaurants Petaling Jaya

This signature three-layered cake is topped with pure chocolate ganache with a chocolate praline mix in the middle, before being set on a base of crunchy wafers. Think of this as a Ferrero Rocher cake.

RM14 per slice
