my friend wants me to make chocolate cake from scratch. never did one I use cake mix from a box .can she be able to taste the different if i use a cake mix ?
Not sure. But people usually like what they're used to, and she might be used to scratch cakes.
Here's an easy recipe:
(See cakemommy's post.)
Just be sure not to drag your measuring cup through the flour! Instead, slightly aerate the flour and then gently spoon into measuring cup - level with knife scraped across top (don't shake).
Anytime I make a chocolate cake from scratch, I always use the recipe on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa container! I especially like to use it when I make 'Butterfinger Cake' (Chocolate cake with a jar of carmel syrup poured over it & then top with whip cream and crushed butterfinger candy bars) *YUMMMY*
i also use the back of hershey's cocoa i love it!!
