Is it ok to name cake  a chocolate cake, where in recipe there is cocoa and oil and no actual chocolate. Or if I say it is a chocolate cake, it has to have chocolate in it.

I would say a cake made with cocoa powder and oil would definitely qualify as a chocolate cake.

Hershey's finds it perfectly acceptable! They have numerous chocolate cakes made with cocoa and oil, such as Perfectly Chocolate Cake.

It makes more sense to name a cake chocolate that is made with cocoa than it is to call frosting buttercream when it's made made with shortening!

Thank ladies! I am asking because I wanted to introduce couple of chocolate cakes  to  my American neighbors. But my tongue doesn`t turn to say that they are chocolate cakes.

The  chocolate cake recipes that I brought with me from my country have butter/oil and cocoa ( I guess because when this recipes were created there was a scarcity of chocolate in Soviet Union).
