The chocolatiest chocolate cake ever?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
I've done variations on the WASC (choc chips, belgian truffle creamer, coffee, etc) chocolate cake and they were wonderful! I'm looking though for the most chocolatey cake ever... I want to cover it in choc buttercream and choc ganache. I'm looking for something that's the chocolate lovers dream!

Any ideas?

I make a chocolate overload that is just to die for. It is 2 layers of dark chocolate devil's food with a layer of brownie in between, filled with dark chocolate sour cream ganache and iced in chocolate IMBC and then topped with more of the ganache.

I'm curious about your brownie layer. I tried it recently using my favorite mix (Ghiardelli Ultimate Fudge brownies), but after 3 attempts I gave up. It just would not cook correctly in an 8" round. I was afraid people would think it was raw chocolate cake.
The plus side is that I now have 3 packets of the DELICIOUS ganache-like icing that comes in each box.

So...any info on your brownies would be greatly appreciated.

Whenever I am going for chocolate overload, I replace some of my liguid ingredient with brewed coffee. It really enhances the chocolate flavor, imho.

This recipe is incredible and so easy. It's called "Too Much Chocolate Cake." It's worth a shot...it's a family favorite of ours for sure!

luv2cake...do you make it in a bundt pan as the recipe states?

The first time I made it in a bundt pan, but I have used it a few times in regular cake pans that I later used in my stacked, decorated cakes. So it works either way!
