Nothing is more important than to have a good chocolate cake recipe in hand whenever you want to bake a chocolate cake. I had my own recipe until so many years ago, when as I was watching TV I saw Martha Stewart dumping a cup of boiling water into her cake batter. I went like, has she lost her mind???? Then she said, rather quickly, “don’t fret, I am using the Hershey’s Cocoa recipe that comes in the back of their cocoa powder container”. I was still skeptical; however, after I tested it, I threw my recipe out and this is what I have been using ever since. Super chocolaty, creamy and moist.
So, get your Hershey’s Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder container, look up the recipe in the back and make a delicious, super moist chocolate cake.
The photos in my slide presentation shows you the ingredients that I used, as well as the steps and how the cake looks from starting the batter to final.
Tomorrow, I’ll give you the ingredients and steps to a creamy chocolate frosting and later this week, we will move into basic simple ways to decorate your chocolate cake at home. Remember, these are not professionally made cakes, they are simple to make and decorate by you, for you and your family, they will love you forever!
