Hi Everyone,

I'm making a cake for my sisters boss tomorrow for Monday and she wants a chocolate cake.

I was given a recipe for a high density chocolate cake and love how easy it is to make and how high it bakes but I've just tried it and it's not that great in flavour...

Does anyone have a fool proof chocolate cake recipe but one that is really chocolaty and intense but bakes quite high around 3" - 4"? (I've tried some other yummy chocolate cake recipes but they only bake 1-2" high.)

Thanks so much icon_smile.gif

elisa strauss has a really good one that is rich because she puts cofee in it. I just made one by Hershey and its really good and chocolatly. as far as rising higher , maybe you can just increase the receipe but they make just 2 ,9" pans

Hi Yvette,

Thanks for your reply. I really like the recipe I tried - it was perfect in every way apart from it just wasn't chocolaty enough...

I was wondering if I could just add melted chocolate to it? Do you think that would work?

Sure - go ahead w/adding melted choco.

yup- that would work. I added choco pudding to mine and semi-sweet choco chips. So good! icon_biggrin.gif

Well you've already made it by now! But in case you weren't 100% satisfied with whatever you made, this thread has some great suggestions.
