This Chocolate Cake is seriously the best chocolate cake you’ll ever make. I absolutely love it. So moist and chocolatey! It totally turned me into a chocolate cake lover!
And if you saw Monday’s post, then you know another giveaway is happening today to continue my 2 year blogiversary celebration! Today we are giving away a 16 GB Wifi iPad Mini!

So back to the chocolate cake. When I said that this cake turned me into a chocolate cake lover, were you wondering if I wasn’t before? Well, it’s true. I wasn’t. Growing up, I was more of a vanilla or other fun flavor kinda kid. I think it’s because store-bought chocolate cakes just do not compare to homemade. I don’t bother with them. Not chocolatey enough.
But once I made this for the first time a fews years, my chocolate world came right. I literally cannot stop eating this cake every time I make it. It is so moist and chocolatey, it should be illegal.
I actually made it again last week for another cake creation and even when I cut the domes off the top, I keep them and eat them. No part of a cake this good should ever go to waste! I offered the hubs a bite, and he took one, but then didn’t want anymore. His ability to resist sweets is inhuman.
But then he came back to me later wanting some. He was all, “where’s the chocolate cake?” and I was all “there wasn’t that much and you declined. I ate it. You snooze, you loose, my friend.”
And I know there are like, a bagillion chocolate cake recipes out there, but seriously. This is a must try. And I really recommend using the dark chocolate cocoa, instead of regular cocoa. It adds such a deep chocolate flavor. Unlike biting into a piece of dark chocolate candy, it’s not bitter at all in cake with all the added sugar.
Plus, like all terrifically easy cakes, you only need one bowl! I LOVE easy!
Be prepared though, it is a very thin batter. And no, it’s not a typo down there. It’s a slow-bake cake and bakes at 300 degrees – crazy stuff!
I made it for my niece’s birthday last year, by request. Like I said, it’s a favorite.
Well, when it was served, one of the moms asked my sister-in-law where she’d gotten the cake. She pointed at me and the mom came over to ask me about it. Turns out she has two restaurants in Atlanta and was curious if I’d be interested in making cakes for her restaurant.
Pretty neato, but I actually said no. Between working full-time, blogging and having some semblance of a life, I’ve got little time for anything else. Sure I could’ve taken time away from something else to do it, but the great thing about blogging is that it’s on my time, not someone else’s. At least, for the most part.
But the point is – this cake is THAT good! Make it and you just might be asked to bake for a restaurant. And whether you want to actually do that or not, don’t you want to be the one with a cake that’s so could you could bake for a restaurant? You know you do.
So be sure to make this cake and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below and the mixer giveaway from Monday. AND, if you’re feeling lucky, I still have a giveaway going on that began last week, for $400 back to school cash. SO MANY THINGS TO WIN! You can do it!
