I've made this one several times, and it's always been great.

Keep an eye on the cooking time though, I found in my oven it was done much faster.

I have to say there are a few ingredients I'd never thought of putting in a cake before. Curiosity is going to get the better of me. I'll try to save some money to make this cake in the next few weeks original.gif

This is my go to never fail chocolate cake.

It's one bowl mix, egg free, dairy free and vegan!

Honestly it's very chocolatey moist and scrumptious!!

The cake part of this cake is UH. MAY.ZING! (Well the whole lots is pretty scrumptious really)

It's really easy and cooks very flat, you don't end up with the big hump in the middle. For the recipe you have to hollow out the cake for the lemon curd... I accidentally ate all of the middle by myself ninja.gif

Here is my go to choc cake recipe, every time i have made it i have been asked for the recipe biggrin.gif

  
Hersheys perfectly chocolate cake

Ingredients:

2 cups sugar                                                                       1 ¾ cups plain flour

¾ cup cocoa                                                                        1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 ½ tsp baking soda                                                         1 tsp salt

2 eggs                                                                                   1 cup milk

½ cup vegetable oil                                                         2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup boiling water

Method:

Heat the oven to 170 degrees.

Grease and flour two 9 inch round baking pans or one 13x9x2 inch pan.

Stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on a medium speed for 2 minutes.

Stir in boiling water until combine (the batter will be thin).

Pour into prepared tins.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes; turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.



Chocolate butter cream icing

Ingredients:

100g butter at room temperature                            40g cocoa (sifted)

300g icing sugar (sifted)                                                 40ml milk

Method:

Combine butter, icing sugar and cocoa in standing mixer. Mix together until combine.

Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until all combine; mix at a high speed until icing becomes light and fluffy.

You can either have 2 cakes or cut the top off each cake (so they are flat) and sandwich them together with the icing and top with more icing. I normally do 2 cakes, 1 for home and 1 for work wink.gif

THIS CAKE.

There is no better chocolate cake. There are a few bloggers that use this exact recipe. Apparently it originally came on the side of hershey's cocoa in the states. I've been making this cake for years and there is no better.
