Hey guys,

I have a couple, where the Bride is originally from California.

She is hoping that I can recreate her favorite cake, which is this "Blackout" cake from Freeport Bakery.

Here is the description: "a very rich, very dense sour cream chocolate cake with creamy blackout frosting."

Has anyone had this cake, and have any recipes or tips on making something like it?

I did a search and here is the recipe I saw the most of....

I have never tried blackout cake before, but it sounds to die for!

HTH and good luck

I have never tried a blackout cake, but Cooks Country has a recipe online

I hope someone has better information for you!

Cheesecake Factory used to sell a blackout cake, not sure if they still do. It was so rich, it made your toes curl. YUM.

Sorry, I don't have the recipe, but Freeport Bakery is just down the street from me! It was funny to see it on CC.

If they're using cake mix, then that's not a real blackout cake. Ask any New Yorker on CC. A blackout cake has a rich, moist, dense cake in it.

Try the recipes instead. You'll enjoy it much more.

I was lucky enough to try that cake, and It's sooooo good. Definitely not a cake mix. I loved the frosting, it was so chocolaty and delicious!

The slice they mailed me totally tasted like a mix? Weird.
