The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe...Ever
As I write this blog post I may or may not be scoffing a piece of this very cake…for research purposes - obviously. This is seriously the best chocolate cake recipe ever. I feel like I’ve tried and baked a fair few chocolate cakes in my time and this one is perfect. It’s moist, chocolatey, not too sweet and has a lovely texture.
The recipe for this delicious cake is from Simple Cake by Odette Williams and I have to say, since buying this cake book, I have referred to no other. I love how this baking book is laid out and every cake I’ve made has been really really good. In addition, the frostings and topping suggestions are exceptional (this chocolate buttercream is the first one I have ever made and actually liked). It’s the kind of book that you buy and then wonder what on earth you did before you owned it.
