All I do is get a chocolate cake box mix and use kakeladi's recipe. I substitute vanilla to the almond extract. It's Basically same recipe without the white cake mix and almond.
I also sometimes substitute coffee for water because it my opinion, it gives it a stronger flavor.
RylanTy, I actually did it that way and even added cocoa powder....I just think it lacks chocolate flavor. I wonder what else can I add to make it more chocolaty......Thanks!
What about using chocolate milk in place of the liquid in the cake OR hot chocolate or a combination of chocolate milk/chocolate syrup. Maybe stir some chocolate chips in the batter; melt chocolate chips in the water that the recipe calls for or melt chocolate chips in the coffee...just some ideas. i've never tried it.
I use MacsMom's version. Check out the HELP! Gourmet flavors! thread and click on her googledocs link. She uses chocolate pudding and chocolate milk in her version. I love it!
I love that thread!!..... I tried making the chocolate cake from macmoms recipe. The only thing I did'nt use was the chocolate milk. I used a combination of coffee and plain milk. Can I melt chocolate and mix it in the batter? What kind of chocolate should I use? Thank you for your help ladies and gents!
Hmmmm, maybe you can throw in some chocolate chips that will melt in the batter. I know that In one of her recipes she mixes in thick caramel, maybe you can do that with a sundae fudge or something?
Maybe I'll try the hersheys syrup...My husband told me to do that yesterday, but of course I ignored him!! I kinda feel bad now If that does'nt work I'll try melted chocolate. I just have to figure out what kind to use.....
I've also tried adding half of a giant hershey bar (melted). It was so good. I ate the other half.
This one is rich and deeply chocolate, without having to add cocoa: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-7367-0-AMAZING-Chocolate-WASC-Cake.html
