Fallen chocolate cake is a moist dessert that is rather like a supermoist, extra-rich brownie that is squishy in the centre. Or you can omit the cream cheese altogether (but of course, it is much tastier with it!). Turn this into a favourite birthday or celebration cake by making it in two 23cm (9 in) cake tins instead of one large one, and layering with chocolate buttercream. No one could stop me. My husband came home after work and asked where the cake was.
This is a lovely, moist, rich chocolate cake, which can be eaten just on its own at any time. Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Please Select Username to appear on public areas of the site like community and recipe comments.
The recipe will make enough for a 9″ layer cake, and just bake a little longer, for 35-40 minutes. While I’ve tried so many chocolate cakes over the years, and failed following so many different recipes, it was time to take matters into my own hands and come up with the best chocolate cake we’ve ever had.
I would like to try this cake as cupcakes, but not sure how to scale down the ingredients. The recipe in question , taken from that American firm’s Essence of Chocolate book, is (according to reports) a very similar beast to the almost equally popular Easy Chocolate Cake on the BBC website.
My son has a mild milk allergy so he can have milk if it has been baked but not raw. The batter is really thick and almost mousse-like: One of my pet peeves is a drippy chocolate cake batter that leaves a big mess all over your counter. This cake is incredibly moist and decadent – worth every minute it takes to make.
