One random day, I realized that I hadn’t made a cake in awhile and I was getting the itch to make one. I know, that is really weird. But it’s just how my weird baking brain works. Gotta bake, gotta create something and make it delicious.
So I decided to try this one from @browneyedbaker. She claimed it was the best chocolate cake ever….sure thing, I know a lot of people claim that. We’ll see about that.
Um, holy smokes. She wasn’t lying, this is literally the Best Chocolate Cake. It’s got a rich chocolate flavor (thanks to the black coffee), super moist and the component that really kicks it over the edge is the frosting. Hello thick, creamy, buttery, chocolatey goodness. Add a glass of milk with this cake and you have a tiny piece of cake heaven.
I basically sat in my kitchen after I made it with a fork, taking bite after bite. I finally had to send some with my mom and with Dave to work because I couldn’t have it in my house anymore without eating all of it. This will definitely be my new go to chocolate cake recipe. Bonus- it’s easy.
