Dark Chocolate Cake Recipe

Finished with an amazing ganache, this Best Fudgy Chocolate Cake is coming at you just in time for your Easter feast! This recipe is grain free, paleo, and dairy free -but full of the chocolatey flavor it deserves! Our family prefers a gooey, brownie-like cake over a light and crumbly chocolate cake. I poured chocolate ganache over after cooling and served it straight out of the pan.

However, I made this as a six inch layer cake (used the original recipe up there, just in 2 6-inch rounds) with plain whipped cream (touch of vanilla and sugar) as the frosting for my 3 year old’s birthday. The term German chocolate cake” was first mentioned in The New Practical Housekeeping by Estelle Wilcox (Minneapolis, 1890), a supplement to her classic 1877 Buckeye Cookery.chocolate cake recipe

I have made similar with cake mix using club soda or seltzer..this is a good alternative if you don’t want the artificial sweetners and you still lose all the fat/calories fromt the eggs and oil. In a 2-quart saucepan, stir the egg yolks, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, the evaporated milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well mixed.chocolate cake recipe

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shelly5555 from I love sweets, but this cake was over the top too sweet for me. I love sweets, but this cake was over the top too sweet for me. It was very tender and looked spectacular presented in a beautiful cake dish. I made this cake for my daughters 19th birthday recently with the Choc Ganache icing and it was a HIT!!!

Super easy to make and works well made the day before and decorated for kids birthdays. I’m wondering about beating vigorously for a minute, after adding the flour, as I understand this makes the cake tough. Cool on a wire rack and when completely cold, ice with either Chelsea Chocolate Icing Sugar or make your favourite with Chelsea Icing Sugar.
