    If you're looking for a single layer of light moist sponge with depth of flavour you can't go wrong with this recipe. I tend to use Green & Blacks' organic cocoa powder (dutched) for best results. If you're watching your waistline but have a sweet tooth, this is quite a tasty little number which won't massively compromise your diet.

    Recipe #229785

    A wonderful, easy, moist, eggless chocolate cake recipe that my mother acquired from a dear friend of hers. The vinegar reacts with the soda, so there is no vinegary taste leftover as long as you use the right amounts of vinegar and baking soda. Fabulous with a rich, fudgy frosting, such as a chocolate sour cream frosting. Time doesn't include cooling time, so be sure to allow a couple-few hours to cool before frosting. Note: I usually bake this in a Pyrex tempered glass pan, and then I frost and serve it right in the pan. If you are planning to remove it from the pan before frosting and/or serving it, it may work better to lightly grease the pan and dust it with cocoa before you pour the batter in (thanks, I'mPat!).

    Recipe #345943

    A wonderful frosting I have used for years made in very little time with perfect results and 100% better than any canned, this frosting is so good you will find yourself eating a fair amount of it before even using it to frost with! --- choose the amount of cocoa powder you desire for either a light, medium or dark frosting, and make certain to sift the cocoa powder and the confectioners sugar before using for the recipe--- this frosting *freezes* very well so double the recipe and freeze one batch for next time --- *NOTE* for an ultra creamy fluffy milk chocolate frosting add in 1 to 1-1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip topping at the end of mixing the frosting and beat on low speed until blended ------- also see my recipe#80118 ---- recipe#282040 --- recipe#90142

    Recipe #89207

    This recipe makes an elegant cake that is beautiful garnished with fresh fruit such as strawberries. Despite the lengthy instructions and long list of ingredients, the cake is very easy to prepare and assemble.

    Recipe #119449

    This is my favorite chocolate cake. No fuss, no mess and very moist. Back in the early days when it was paycheck to paycheck, this simple dessert made it into his lunchbox many a day because it was cheap and simple. No eggs, no milk.

    Recipe #29935

    This is a recipe my mother made when we were children. It was so moist it never needed frosting. Mom would use a paper doily to make a pretty powdered sugar design on the top. I have found a couple online, but they just were not as good.

    Recipe #313457

    This is sooo easy and really quite yummmy. It is also nice for small families, because it only makes a small cake. The recipe originally came from Taste of Home and they used a 700 watt oven to test the recipe. Mine is a 900 watt and you just have to adjust the time a bit to accomodate your microwave the first time you make it.

    Recipe #191783

    i found this recipe online and i tried it once and since then my family and friends alwaaaaaaaaaaays asked for it...... i really encourage you to try it!!! i know the directions seem long but it's easy and worth it...!!

    Recipe #308123

    Made in a coffee mug that you cook in the microwave! I got this from my nextdoor neighboor who found it on an internet forward. its delicous! It can be a little dry, try topping or swirling with chocolate syrup?

    Recipe #325674

    These are the most mouth-watering cupcakes you will ever have. They are very dark chocolate and very moist and are filled with a whipped whoopie pie filling. They crack open when you fill them. These have been much loved in our family for years--loved more than Whoopie Pies. The batter also makes a wonderful 9x13 cake.

    Recipe #101798

    Noni was a tiny little lady from home, she was my Grandma's best friend for 80+ years. She made the best chocolate cake with this thick sweet icing. She used make it at the lake every summer in the old wood stove.

    Recipe #214252

    This is a great make-ahead frosting which can be refrigerated up to 2 weeks or frozen up to 3 months. Makes enough frosting for 2-8", 2-9" or 1 - 13x9 cake. Cook time includes cooling time.

    Recipe #53523

    While it takes slightly longer to prepare this recipe than a box mix, the resulting moist, delicious cake makes it VERY worth the little extra time. I consider this 'perfect' chocolate cake. This cake is excellent with both with Recipe #261024 and Recipe #208959 (the dark flavor version). (I use Recipe #95416 when I'm decorating the cake.) I love how the leftovers are still moist even a day or two later. (I store my loosely covered with plastic wrap.) My father adores this cake with Recipe #261024 on it. For his birthday, Father's Day etc. I make him cupcakes with the icing on them and individually wrap them. He keeps them in his freezer for when he wants "a piece of cake". He claims they are as good as when they are fresh. (Even though it isn't where I got the recipe from so I can't vouch for it, reviewers have said it is the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa can. I would recommend using their Special Dark Cocoa if possible.)

    Recipe #2496

    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.

    Recipe #131023

    If you bake and cook everyday then this is a must to have in your cupboard, it's so much cheaper than using cooking spray and works even better than Pam cooking spray, no chemical fumes and will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray will and will keep forever in your cupboard --- for baking recipes using chocolate you may use 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in place of white flour or 1/4 cup each cocoa powder and flour --- this may be increased or decreased sucessfully just make certain that *all* three ingredients are the same amounts or the mixture will not work as well ;-)

    Recipe #78579

    VERY GOOD moist chocolate cake! (If I do say so myself!) I made mini ones this time, will post all directions for whatever size(s) you'd like to make!

    Recipe #140272

    I found this in Bon Appetit magazine December 2002. I've made this for the past 2 new years eves and it's a big hit. It's well worth the time that it takes to make it. A thick layer of pure white chocolate truffle separates the amaretto-brushed layers, and a bit more truffle filling is used to flavor the whipped cream icing. For the chocolate stars, you can use 6 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped

    Recipe #158408

    A quick and easy recipe for a chocolate fix.

    I'm not sure where this came from, but this is Tom's favorite chocolate cake. Be warned, it's chocolate-chocolate... :-) I make it once per year, on his birthday.
