Never Fail Chocolate Cake

Never Fail Chocolate Cake created by Food Snob in Israel

This cake is from the 40 and 50's My mother-in-law, Ruth Hinz, taught me to make this when I was newly married. It is so moist and dense--yummmy!

    This cake had the old fashioned texture of a homemade cake, which we love, and was very moist and delicious! I frosted with a chocolate cream cheese frosting that just sent it over the top for us! Thanks for such a great cake Evalyn! We will make often in the future. Into my favorites this one goes! Thanks for sharing. Becky

    My kids loved this cake! So easy to make, basic ingredients, without all the preservatives in a cake mix. I frosted it with Kittencal's Chocolate Buttercream Frosting/Icing, Recipe #89207. Thanks for sharing the recipe

    No no no. This struck out for me (and if you read my reviews, you will see that little ranks this low for me!) I'm sorry, but this tasted like a cheap sheet cake that can be bought at any local grocery store. I even used excellent ingredients. The batter looked lovely. The cake looked lovely. BEAUTIFUL presentation. But it was just cheap tasting and far too dense. My hubby wouldn't eat it. My daughter wouldn't eat it. My guests wouldn't finish their pieces (though they loved the whipped cream frosting I used). Bummer.

    Evalyn, this was a hit in our house! I made this to celebrate my daughter's birthday, and topped it with Whipped Cream Frosting (Recipe ID #39013). Even 60+ years later, the recipe still isn't failing!!! It was so easy to whip up, and it was convenient to be able to dump all the ingredients into the bowl at once. An easy and yummy cake. Thanks for sharing your tried and trusted recipe!
