The girls @ work want me to make a chocolate cake to bring in on Monday (we've had a hard wk). I wanted to bake something that is different and not your ordinary chocolate cake. Any ideas??
There's a very good chocolate cake recipe on Cooking For Engineers . com
Still just regular chocolate though
Maybe try making a "mud cake"?
I have seen a few recipes for thes,e and they are supposedly very moist and fudgey. There are a few that look good in the recipes section here (the dark chocolate mud cake is on my list to make soon), as well as this one:
Scratch only? Or is doctored cake mix ok? I usually only bake from scratch (not that there's anything wrong with mixes! I just prefer to bake from scratch ), but my favorite chocolate cake is a doctored cake mix recipe.
* 1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix (I ONLY use DH devel's food)
* 1 Sm. box Instant Chocolate Pudding
* 1 C. Sour Cream
* 4 Eggs
* 1/2 C. Water
* 1/3 C. Oil
* 1 C. Chocolate Chips
Beat everything except the chocolate chips for 1 min. on low speed. Scrape sides and bottom, and beat another 2 minutes on med or high spead (med for stand mixer, high for hand mixer).
Mix chocolate chips in by hand.
Bake at 350 for 50 min or until a toothpick comes clean.
I usually put this in a bunt pan, but you can do whatever (just be sure to adjust baking time!)
Try the "blue ribbon moist and fudgey chocolate cake" posted on here by Lisa. It is the best chocolate cake that I have ever had!!! It has chocolate syrup in it as well as cocoa.......soooooooooooo GOOD!!!!
Thanks guys. They all sound de-lious.
