I need a really good Chocolate Cake that will bake nice and moist but yet be firm. Does anyone have a favorite Chocolate Cake they get requests for or a White or Basic Vanilla Cake? I'd like to start with regular cake mixes if I can. I will be using the 12 x 15 Cake pan if that matters. So I will need at least 2 cake mixes to start with!

Thank you CC'ers!

Thank you! Does this cake rise pretty high? I was wondering how it would do with cupcakes as well. Chocolate milk, is that the premade chocolate milk in containers you buy at grocery store? Thanks,
Rita

you can just buy chocolate milk from the store, sometimes instead of buying a seperate thing of chocolate milk just for that I just use chocolate syrup if I have it on hand and mix it with regular milk instead to make it in a small batch.

It stays fairly level in pans. usually when I make cake I use cake flour, when I make cupcakes I use regular flour. Jut my preference.

sometimes the chocolate recipes can get really thick if it seems too thick after adding all the ingredients, I just add more liquid until the consistancy is right...

Thank you for answering the question. Another one.... coffee? Is that instant coffee grounds, or instant coffee dissolved in liquid? icon_wink.gif
Thanks again.

OH yes make sure its cooled down icon_biggrin.gif

I have done both, if I dont want to brew an entire pot of coffe I have used instant coffee mixed into water.

In some chocolte recipes I will just throw instant coffee granules in it to boost the chocolate flavor too.

If you want to use boxed cake mixes, I have very good success and great reviews from those who eat my cakes using The Cake Doctor Cake Mix Cookbook. The buttermilk devil's food for chocolate and the batter for the caramel or Bride's cake for the vanilla one. Hope that helps.

Darn Good Chocolate Cake from Cake Mix Doctor as well and her version of white sour cream is a wonderful vanilla recipe as it does not use almond extract.
