Elyse's Chocolate Cake

Elyse's Chocolate Cake created by Katrina

This cake is a deep dark brown. It is so easy and comes out perfect everytime. When I moved to Israel, I gave Elyse cake decorating lessons and she shared this recipe with me. It is the only chocolate cake recipe I use. It is so easy, my husband (who can barely microwave a hot dog) made this for me and it turned out great. This is the perfect base if you are going to ice/decorate it. Just put it in the freezer overnight first and the icing spread beautifully. Just as easy as Duncan Hines and much cheaper too.

    I have made this cake many many times and it is consistently wonderful. Great flavour. This is a great cake for those who adhere to a kosher diet as there is no milk in it and can be served after a meat meal. It's rich enough not to have icing which is how we enjoy it. Highly recommended.

    Wow this cake was really great, and awesome taste. I made this and used a peanut butter frosting on top and it was wonderful. I even think this would be great without frosting, just dusted with a little confectioners sugar. Thanks I will be making this often.
