I agree with patticakesnc and cakepro. The chocolate cake receipe on the back of the hershey's can is the best chocolate cake recipe i have tried. I think the other sister in the church was probably upset because her cake was not free and she just wanted to vent her disappointment.

I'm with dkelly... that epicurious cake is delicious. I use Ghirardelli cocoa... I prefer it to hershey's, but that's my palate. I don't like some higher end chocolates either (Callebaut is one that comes to mind). Using hershey's won't result in an awful tasting cake though so if that is your love... then by all means use it. icon_smile.gif

I'm thinking that if she's complaining and no one else is... it's about the money. And she liked the free cake to boot? Were they 100% the same? Fillings and all? If so... then I say there is no merit to her complaint. Does she know that both cakes came from the same exact batter? I'd let her know that.

Huh? Weeeeeeird. Ditto DKelly's recipe link. Threads have been started here just to say how absoflipping fantastic that recipe is.

Thanks for the support guys. Her sister also goes to my church and tasted the free one and liked it. And I did not tell her that i did it for free. I will gladly accept constructive criticism on my cakes but the way she behaved was not kool. I found a DARN GOOD CHOCOLATE CAKE recipe on this site and i think i'll give it a try. Pray for me! icon_redface.gif I tasted the cake and so did my husband. He said it was good and trust me, he is my biggest critique.

I use Ghiradelli's as well. Personally for me, the hershey's has a "burnt" taste to it. And no, I've never burnt a Hershey's cake before. I just don't know any other way to describe it. But, once again, it just show's how tastebuds can vary & not everyone likes the same thing.

i am an all-out chocoholic.

that being said, I myself am not that thrilled with chocolate cake recipes, be they scratch or boxed they don't taste chocolatey. If I'm having chocolate, then I AM HAVING CHOCOLATE!!! so typically I opt for brownies.....
But....my absolute favorite chocolate cake is from Dom De Louise's book "eat this it'll make you feel better"
it's a doctored mix and boy is it good. I'll post it here in a jiffy have to get the book.

all right here you go it's called death by chocolate cake

4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil

beat the above ingredients together in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed.
Add:

1 chocolate cake mix
1 small box of instant chocolate pudding mix

Beat until smooth
stir in:

1 12-oz. package of semisweet chocolate chips

Pour into cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
variation: replace 1/4 cup water with grand marnier

never done the variation


......hmmmm now that i read it sounds like chocolate wasc with chocolate chips, the chips make it sooooo much better and frost chocolate *drooling*

Okay, could someone post a link to Cakepro's chocolate cake recipe? I searched the recipes and can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance.
post #27 of 53
can i ask whats the point of adding choc pudding mixes (ive seen a couple of receipes with choc pud) to the cake mixture? is it to add moisture, flavour, make the cake more dense? ive never even eaten choc pudding so i dont know why its being added to the cakes

thanks

i'm one of the weird ppl.. then again i may be alone on this.. i don't really care for brownies. i love fudge, chocolate cake.. chocolate.. but not brownies... even *i* am not sure why.. if i have a choco fit and need a fix, if its the only chocolate thing around i'll indulge but.. it will usually be the last choice for me- now there have been exceptions to this some brownies i've had were Very good.
