oh my god this is the best chocolate cake ever! I did however change it just a little, I used a chocolate cake mix instead of a yellow one... it was wonderful, very moist and rich!
Awesome cake! Works really well with vanilla buttercream, too!
I didn't try the cake, but I did try the frosting, which was really good. I was really in the mood for a chocolate cake and I didn't want to experiment, but I will try in the future. Frosting was awesome!
This is an amazing cake. It has a brownie, fudge like texture, and amazing chocolte taste. I did not make the icing. It is for serious chocolate lovers. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Okay so I finally tried to the cake.(Previously I only tried the frosting) It was amazing! This is now my go to chocolate cake recipe. Thanks!
This is just the best chocolate frosting. I have tried the cake but I'm sure it's wonderful too.
Is this cake sturdy enough to hold the weight of fondant?
I am typically a white/yellow cake girl, but this is one the best chocolate cakes I have ever had and can eat the batter until I get sick! I was a little fearful of it's moistness and being able to hold MMF and stacking, so I just cut down the sryrup by half and it's still wonderful! Haven't tried the icing yet, but will need to sometime soon. Thanks for the great recipe!
This cake is out of this world I changed the amounts of chocolate that you suggested so it would be my own... OMG thanks for such a great start!
Hi - how much cake does this make, size of pans? Thanks
This Recipe was FABULOUS! So lucious, moist and delicious! I used it for cupcakes I made for a 21st birthday party. Thank you for sharing, I will definitely be using this recipe again. The frosting was thick and fudgey, had a rich flavor, and held up great! It would be great separate or combined as is for the choco-holics!
can you use fondant on this cake?
I am a cake newbie.
The other day I stopped by a top local bakery and they were closed due to a power outage so I researched and found this recipe and also the Bjuttercream Dream recipe because my family requested a chocolate cake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting.. I made the recipe as posted and baked it in a convection oven. The layers did not rise very high so I made a second batch and used 3 of the 4 layers that it made. I spread raspberry jelly between the layers and frosted it with Buttercream Dream which I made for the the first time, too. My family said it was better than the bakery cake!!!!
Thank you thank you thank you!!
I say that someone has already asked this, but I never saw an answer....is this cake dense & sturdy enough ti hold up to fonddant & stacking? Sounds wonderful & I'd like to use it in a stacked cake I'm baking tonight....if anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks!! :)
