This chocolate cake is very easy and quick to bake, and it is so moist and delicious. I am sure that everyone would like this cake, so it is perfect for throwing a party, baking for the kid’s school or maybe for your colleagues? I got this recipe from my grandmother.
I have baked it so many times, and it is always good and loved by everyone. It is actually not really a chocolate cake but more a cocoa cake. But that just makes it a lot easier – because everyone has cocoa in the kitchen, but not always chocolate. In my opinion this is the best chocolate cake ever!
If you are looking for a healthy alternative to this chocolate cake we can absolutely recommend this recipe for a chocolate cake with no sugar or flour added.
