Re: Forever in search of the perfect chocolate cake batter recipe.

My trucker daughter is home for a few days, so I made the Hershey's chocolate cake, using fresh coffee instead of the boiling water.   The cake is very good, and nearly gone, but I have already "made note to self" to try this chocolate cake with a white frosting next time.

Re: Forever in search of the perfect chocolate cake batter recipe.

@RedTop  I have a recipe for Twinkie Filling somewhere. I think keeping the chocolate frosting on the exterior, with the filling between layers, would be really good. Would you be interested in it for 'next time'?

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

I made the Hershey chocolate cake today.  It looks scrumptious.

The only change I made to the recipe was adding a teaspoon of instant espresso coffee.

Thanks for all the recipes and suggestions.  This is the piece I cut for my husband, he said, "That's too big a piece" and then he ate every bite. Unfortunately, I can't eat chocolate, so I can't help him.

@RedTop, when we were growing up and my mom made this cake, she always frosted it w/ vanilla frosting!  Smiley Happy

@house_cat It's really good isn't it? DH made it for my Birthday. Oh sorry I guess you said you cannot eat chocolate. I cannot live without it. 

I always forget to use my expresso powder when baking chocolate goodies.

@Nightowlz

 

I had to look twice at your post!

I awoke this morning to find mine cut in exactly the same way!

I thought you had posted my cake!

 

It must be good because first DH objected to the big piece I cut for him, but sometime after I went to bed he chipped away at it a bit more... just sayin'.

@CareBears

 

Thanks, I love them too!  They belonged to my great aunt , who was more like a grandma to me.  I'd always thought they were very old, but she bought them in the 1960s.... that's pretty old now, but when I was a kid and thought they were old they were actually quite new.

 

As for the cake, it's sitting in the kitchen and I can swear I hear it calling to me.
