Fantastic cake - I will never need another choc cake recipe ! I used it for my daughters birthday cake which I iced traditionally, they bake anywhere from 15-17 minutes 🙂We had a family birthday party last weekend and I was asked to bring the cake. Well…that's not exactly accurate. I got the email about having a family party and immediately started thinking about cake flavors. I came up with a few different options and printed the recipes before Mike asked me: “Were you even asked to bring a cake?” Minor details! I decided on the dark chocolate cake you see here and emailed my mother-in-law saying “I'd be happy to bring a birthday cake if you'd like.” (In my head I was thinking “Pleeeeease let me bring a cake because now I'm sold on this cake and I have to make it and I should definitely not be left alone with a whole cake at our house!”).And let me tell you, I did use their dark cocoa powder. Sometime I want to do a blind taste test with different ingredients to see how noticeable the difference is.We think this recipe should work ok for cupcakes but we haven't tested it so couldn't say how many it would make.. Bake for about 20 mins at the same oven temp. Best of luck! Or you could try our Smartie cupcakes instead?, Pro tip: Dust chocolate chips in flour before you add them to the batter. This light flour coating helps prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the cake when baking.
Hi Adeline, thank you for sharing the recipe. I have a charity event where I was asked to bake this cake but I'm traveling 4 days before the event and was wondering if I can freeze the cake after cooling and icing?Icing: Bring to boil: 1 stick butter, because her pregnant daughter craved it. I had not baked a chocolate cake for over two decades. The first recipe that came to mind was that Hershey recipe from many years ago. I checked the internet and discovered that the recipe is still on the box. I told my friend to buy the specific Hershey's cocoa and bake the recipe on the box. She did and was so pleased that she even sent me the photo of her cake.Hi Megan I am wondering, Prep time 10 mins Cook time 50 mins
For the icing: Cream together butter, but you really can't taste the coffee in the end result it just deepens the chocolate flavor.Amazing cake I discovered this cake recipe as the result of accidentally buying a tin of carnation caramel instead of condensed milk. I found this recipe to use the caramel and now always keep a tin as this is my go to cake for a special occasion. A firm favourite with family and friends it us a lovely moist chocolate cake with seriously tasty chocolate caramel frosting. It is relatively quick and easy to make and for someone who is hopeless at presentation I put white chocolate buttons on the top for a simple but attractive finish. No photo as the cake doesn't last long enough in this houseRated 5 out of, more competent cooks. for full access.Grab a free printable version of this Toll House Cake recipe:Add the final cake layer and coat the entire cake liberally with chocolate frosting. Sprinkle the top of the cake with brown sugar and press brown sugar into the sides of the cake. This step can be messy, both times increasing the amounts by half so using 3 eggs etc..I split the mixture between 2x 8" (20cm) cake tins. Also I increased the sugar to nearly the same amount as flour as first time I found it to lack sweetness. It is now my go to recipe for chocolate cake and everyone who has tried it has loved it!! Thanks carnation!
