My Favorite Chocolate Cake
This chocolate cake is moist, chocolately and a crowd-pleaser! It is very reiminiscent of the cakes many of us grew up on and is based on the famous Perfect Hershey Cake recipe – just with my own twist!
One of the things I love most about this cake is that it is a one bowl dump cake – few dishes, don’t have to pull out the mixer – kids can make this (with a little help with the hot water and oven)!
This is great for single tiered, multiple tiered or sheet cakes. It is not ideal for sculpting, but if you decide to try, make sure it is a bit frozen before you start carving in, and make sure you coat it with ganache afterwards – buttercream is not likely to hold it together!
This cake was used to make the Toadstool and Screw Cakes – you can check those out here!
