Another week in quarantine has gone by and I refuse to get addicted to watching Netflix. So instead, I decided to get my baking on and bake a chocolate cake! I have been baking ever since I can remember. My grandma and I used to bake everything – from pies to cakes to muffins. Everything!
I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to post my baking on here as I mainly try to focus on healthy living. But, one of the things I find most important in a healthy lifestyle is eating everything but in moderation. (That means chocolate cake too). So that being said, it can’t hurt to have a couple of delicious baking recipes on the blog! Am I right?
Also, to top it all off, it was my mom’s birthday this past weekend. I asked what kind of cake she wanted and all she said was “Chocolate on chocolate on chocolate.” Enough said I made her a chocolate cake!
I am a huge fan of chocolate brownies or chocolate muffins as I find the consistency richer and flavourful. Growing up, I loved chocolate cake but have found them not as tasty if they’re layered. They tend to either taste a little dry or that richness is gone. As for why – I don’t know. This is a recipe I have been using for a while now and can promise you, it is moist (worst word EVER – I know but I can’t describe it any other way), it is rich and it is decadent. This chocolate cake recipe IS the best chocolate cake recipe ever. It is more of a deep rich delicious brownie kind of taste rather than a dry brittle “bought it at the grocery store” kind of cake.
So, one of the first things that I ordered just before easter was a cake decorating set. Wow, this was life-changing. I had made cakes beforehand but never was able to make them look professional. This set is a game-changer. If you’re new to baking/cake decorating I highly recommend this set. It comes with over 100 plastic pipe bags and more than 20 different types of piping lids and a rotating cake table. Anyways, you can check it out here. I don’t know how I would have gotten my cake looking this great without this.
As for now, I will only be posting this chocolate cake recipe as I prepare and organize the Nutella buttercream frosting I added for this cake. Stay tuned, as for the frosting and some layering tips as well.
Let me know how you enjoy this delicious chocolate cake & stay tuned for more.
