Need Chocolate Cake to die for - Page 3

post #31 of 73
Here is my favorite recipe:

2 cups sugar
1 3/4 flour
3/4 cups cocoa
2 tsp bkg soda
1 tsp bkg pwdr
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup strong black coffee
1 tsp vanilla

Put all ingredients into mixer and beat for 2 minutes ( Batter will be really thin).

Pour into prepared pans

Bake @ 350F for 35-40 min or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean

This is the only chocolate cake recipe I use. I always think I've messed up because the batter is so thin but, works like a charm. I especially love that it is a 1 bowl cake recipe!!

The last time I made it, I doubled it & had a huge mess on the KA mixer. It fills the bowl too much.
From the double batch I was able to make:
2 x 8" rounds
2 x 4" rounds
2 x Wilton course 2 oval pans
AND
12 cupcakes

i love the "darn good chocolate cake" recipe posted in the recipes section here. i think it said it was from a book so maybe it's already posted on this thread in another form or another title, not sure. but it uses sour cream, chocolate chips, and it's a doctored cake mix recipe. i start with dh dark chocolate fudge. it's one of those chocolate cakes that is sooooo dense and fudgey you absolutely can't eat it without a big glass of milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. icon_smile.gif i love it and it always gets rave reviews. just search "darn good chocolate cake" in the recipes.

Here is a good adaptable chocolate cake recipe that I use.

1 box DH swiss chocolate cake mix
1 1/3 cup water
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup mayo or 1 cup sour cream or 1 small box of chocolate instant pudding (do not use more then 1 of these additions)
4 eggs
1/3 cup veg oil

preheat oven to 325. mix all ingrediants in electric mix until smooth and creamy (about 3 min). Pour into desired pans. Follow pan time directions.

Easy as pie. You can add flavors to change up the taste.

For a choco PB cake, omit the maple and cinnimon and add 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter. For a black forest type cake omit the maple and cinnamon and add 1/3 cup of raspberry puree and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. For a dark Chocolate orange cake, omit the maple and cinnamon and add 1/4 cup of dark cocoa powder and replace a cup of the water with fresh orange juice.

Just a few examples of how adaptable this recipe can be.

Could i ask for those that have tried the epicurious chocolate recipe.. did anyone try using the recipe to make cupcakes? If so, did you need to adjust the oven temperature? :p It sounds really good and i want to try it.. but i only have cupcake pans and no sheet pans! haha icon_smile.gif

the cakebox, yes i freeze it often when i have left over batter , i bake, cool, wrap and freeze and as long as its wrapped well, the thawed cakes have no change in taste or texture.

i also agree with the coffee and it having no noticable "coffee flavor", it just really kicks up the intensity of the chocolate taste. it adds a real rich flavor. i love it!

the 350 in the earlier post was for layers...

um...

There's another thread going on that I got sucked into...cupcakes! OMG!

http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=582525&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=210


I was able to get 24 cupcakes and 3-6" rounds out of that recipe.

This was the 3rd batch that I was messing with the temperature.

The flavor, the texture, the moistness is altogether awesome.
