Satisfy that chocolate craving with one of our Top 10 chocolate cake recipes as rated by members. But then i started questioning the means… i went back and reread it, and i noticed the phrasing of the cake entering the bedroom lacked any mention of stairs, and then i realized i was being kinda silly..although it would have been amazing if you’d climbed up to the 2nd floor just to get at the cake.
Omit the frosting; scatter 1 cup shredded coconut and 1 cup chopped pecans in the bottom of a greased and floured 13- by 9-inch baking pan; top with the batter; beat together 8 ounces cream cheese, ½ cup (1 stick/4 ounces/115 grams) unsalted butter, and 2 cups confectioners’ sugar until smooth, then drop spoonfuls over top of the batter; bake as above.
I used self-raising flour(it said in the bag-for making cakes) as i can’t find cake flour here in u.k. lucky to have the McCormick Ube flavouring in the Filipino shop here near us (so very glad when i saw it,i grabbbed it and said u are ‘t realized people were looking at me hahaha!)many thanks again, mmore power and God bless.
Divide this batter, using a rubber spatula to help you scrape and spread, into the prepared tins and bake until a cake tester, or a thin skewer, comes out clean, which should be about 35 minutes, but it is wise to start checking at 25. Also, it might make sense to switch the two cakes around in the oven halfway through cooking time.
Firstly, check that you are using the correct size tin and that the oven is fully up to temperature before putting the cake in. Avoid opening the oven door during cooking time as this lets the heat out of the oven and can cause the cake to collapse and not cook in the stated time.
