"Cake is my favorite dessert - especially frosted cake." So says Anna Ginsberg from Austin, Tx. The recipe was found on cookinglightcentral.com. I didn't include cooling time for cake in the recipe, that will vary according to the weather and humidity. I am so glad Anna Ginsberg chose to share this recipe and that we were able to make this delicious cake!
This is the EASIEST dark chocolate cake yet. It is super-chocolaty and very moist. I've been using this recipe for 30-years. NOTE: Here's a substitute for the one cup buttermilk: 2/3 cup plain yogurt plus 1/3 cup milk.
This is one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted (and I don't really like chocolate cakes that much!). It's dense but not too sweet so you can eat heaps of it if you like. It will keep in the fridge for a few days. This recipe comes from a book called "French food and cooking" by Carole Clements and Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen.
I found this recipe about 25 years ago in a magazine. I realize it isn't a "from scratch" recipe, but sometimes you want something a bit out of the ordinary even though you are pressed for time. Its been a very popular dessert with my family for picnics, BBQ's, etc. and always a success at bake sales. It tastes like those chocolate covered coconut candy bars :)
A friend made this recently and again, I had to beg for the recipe. It was the best chocolate cake I've tasted in a long time! I had to wonder if it was the beer in the recipe??? It was just wonderful.
For when you don't want to put in a lot of effort and don't want much washing up to do afterwards. I would just serve as is, but you can frost it if you want to. UPDATE 5/20/7: Some of the reviewers have not liked the combination of cloves with chocolate that much so I'm making inclusion of that ingredient optional. If you're not sure, cut back to 1/4 tsp, or try adding just a tiny bit to a small portion of the dough and see if you like the taste--or just leave it out altogether.
