Default Chocolate Cake

Yum.

Opinions, anecdotes, recipes, observations, complaints?




My personal favorite quote about chocolate cake is, "It's ganache, goddamnit! It's good for you!"

I love this basic chocolate cake recipe. The batter looks thin but it bakes up perfectly. I am a very novice baker but this is easy even for me

Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake.

Top it with the icing (recipe on the linked page too) and it's perfect. Easy too!

We sing this one a lot around here! Most of the time I substitute "brings me" for "feeds me" since Mr. Spring is usually bringing me something because I'm lazy. I've just realized I don't even know where it comes from...

My step-mom makes a great chocolate sheet cake with boiled chocolate frosting. Wish we lived closer to them.

I'm so glad I've got a brownie for dessert tonight.

It's from a Bill Cosby routine! I know because I had to look it up when I saw TRBL appear to quote my childhood, lol.
