Favorite Chocolate Cake Recipe
I think different versions of this recipe have probably been floating around for as long as cake mixes have been around, but I first found this doctored up cake mix recipe over at Kevin and Amanda’s a few years ago. And I haven’t made a chocolate cake any other way since.
I am absolutely and utterly in love with it.
Say what you will about cake mixes, but I have never (ever, ever, ever, ever, ever) tasted a chocolate cake made from scratch that tastes anywhere near as good as this doctored up cake mix cake tastes. I mean, just not even close.
Thanks to sour cream (or yogurt) and pudding mix, it’s super moist, in the best of ways. Mini chocolate chips give it a texture I can’t get enough of. It’s hardy and fluffy at the same time. And it’s deep chocolatey flavor is in a league of its own.
Oh. And I suppose I should talk about the frosting! I got so carried away with my favorite cake, I nearly forgot!
Meet my good old, stand by butter cream recipe. I’ll be posting vanilla bean butter cream recipe on another day, but I’ll go ahead and let you in on a secret: the chocolate and vanilla are basically the same recipe.
But hey, vanilla is for another day! We’re all chocolate in this post!
So. Chocolate. Butter cream. It’s good. Make it.
And put it on this cake.
