Just wanted to let everyone know that I tried the Epicurious Double Layer Cake recipe as cupcakes this morning and they were fabulous!!! icon_lol.gif

I used 3 oz of Scharffen Berger Semi Sweet Dark Chocolate (60% cocoa) and Ghiradelli Unsweetened Cocoa Powderfor the cake recipe and Trader Joe's Tahitian Vanilla Extract.

The recipe made 43 cupcakes (nicely domed). I baked at 350 C for 15 minutes. The cupcakes were fabulous and the ganache recipe (see recipe) was also great.

This is the best scratch/chocolate cake I have tasted/made in a long time.

I just made this cake this weekend. Filled it with a layer of banana custard and a layer of fresh strawberries and whipped cream. It was out of this world!

AI know this is an old post but I just attempted this recipe and want to know if I screwed up. I forgot to add the coffee/chocolate mixture. I realized my mistake and added it in the end. They are baking now. Is this cake doomed? Thanks, Erin

I have this same recipe in a chocolate cake book that I have. It also says to cook cake at 300 degrees. I normally make Hershey's chocolate cake but next time I am going to try this recipe since everyone says it is so good!! Thanks for posting!!! The banana custard, whip cream and strawberries sound terrific together.
