Deeeeelicious! Super moist dark chocolate cake. Tastes even better days later.
Delicious!! I made this cake for my final project for my Wilton cake decorating class, with Bavarian Cream Filling (Bavarian Cream) and Nutella buttercream frosting... truly decadent!! I was a little worried about the coffee, but it doesn't taste like coffee, especially once you get the frosting on it. We aren't coffee drinkers, but I keep packets of Starbucks instant coffee around the house for guests, so I used that.
Wow, this cake is amazing, it turned out brown-almost black with a rich chocolate taste. By mistake (old eyes) I used 1/3 cup cocoa instead of 1/4 cup, but neither the cake's taste nor texture suffered as a result. This is hands down the best cake I have ever baked. DH said the cake was so good, just sprinkle some confectioner's sugar on it instead of icing or frosting. Made for DH's birthday and I Recommend Tag game.
I dont usually write reviews but I just made this cake and it is THE BEST chocolate cake I have EVER had. Its really moist, not too sweet & surprisingly light, I didnt bother with the frosting served with fresh cream & raspberries.....chocolate cake heaven!!!
Great cake, but never mind this frosting recipe. It is much better with a nice fluffy boiled icing.
I make a lot of different cakes and I like this one because it came out very moist. I added a french vanilla coffee and replaced the interior frosting with raspberry jam and the exterior frosting with chocolate ganache and fresh raspberries, it was a hit! Thanks for a great recipe.
This cake is so good! When I took my first bite, I was pleasantly surprised with a burst of chocolate, the old fashioned devil's food cake chocolate. The recipe is easy to follow, the times are right on, and I definately will be making this again! Thanks for posting!
I'm so glad I tried this recipe. The cake is very rich, moist and delicious. I've tried a few chocolate recipes from scratch but this is my new favorite. The cake tastes the best right out of the fridge so make it in advance the morning of your event. I was worried about the icing but my relatives all raved about it and said usually they don't like icing. I will defintely make this again. I did not make any changes. Maybe next time I will bake it in a 9 x 13 pan because the cake did stick to the 9" round.
I have made this at least 10 times. I am usually not a fan of chocolate cake, but my family is. After trying it the first time I couldn't believe how good it was and have ended up making it over and over.
Because I knew my next review would be my 100th here at Zaar, I wanted it to be for something extra special. This cake was the perfect choice! Oh my gosh, it is so good!! It rose up so light and fluffy, and the taste is out of this world!! I followed the recipe exactly. Chocolate lovers will be in heaven when they try it. Thanks Karen, for this awesome recipe!
