Sorry, I can't visualize the size of these ingredients because the amounts are in grams. Does all of this batter fit into a KitchenAid mixer bowl (you say it makes six 9" cakes)??
no it wont fit in a kitchenaid bowl. i work at a resort, and this a scaled down version of our recipe. 450 g is a pound, so maybe that helps visualize it a bit better.
Sounds like a dream recipe! Have you been successful halving the recipe? I don't always need 6 layers...:)
Wow! That's a lot of cake! If I was better at cutting recipes in half and having them be successful, I'd try this recipe, but just don't know what I'd do with 4 extra rounds. Guess I could freeze them. Does this cake freeze well?
this cake freezes AWESOME! it is just as moist as when you bake it fresh. this is a scaled down version of one i use at work so yes you could half it easliy
you can also make cupcakes out of this recipe
Thank you for sharing ,this is awesome!

Thanks for the recipe! I scaled the recipe down to fit my Kitchenaid mixer. It made about 9 cups of batter:
1.85 c buttermilk 1.33 c oil 7.25 oz eggs (about 4 ea) 1/2 tsp vanilla 1.85 c water, hot 3.58 oz cocoa powder 1.5# sugar .45 oz salt .75 oz baking soda 1# flour
I made this recipe 1.5x's for one 2x14" round pan filled 3/4 full. It took about 1.5 hrs to bake at 325*F. About halfway into the bake time the batter completely overflowed!! I filled the second pan 2/3 full and it was fine. This is a VERY tender devil's food cake, so it may not fit every purpose. Tastes great, though!
This sounds exactly like the Hershey's perfectly chocolate cake recipe on the back of the cocoa box, except using buttermilk instead of regular milk. It is very delicious! Try that recipe if you don't have a scale .
i cant wait to try this thanks for al the info
Does this work well for cupcakes?
I agree with you Moefefa. This recipe though is very delicious. However, the cakes do not do well in tiered cakes. I made a 2 layer cake today with tons of dowels for support and still leaned towards the sides. This is good for a single layer or tiered buttercream cake (NOT FONDANT!).
i've never had a problem with stacking this cake with buttercream or covering in fondant. We use this cake for tiered wedding cakes all the time.
THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE!!!!! Love the taste, it is so moist yet I have no problem making carved cakes or stacked tiered cakes :)!
