Did you know that today is National Chocolate Cake day? Whaaat? I must have some chocolate cake in order to honor such an esteemed and special day! One of the best chocolate cakes that I remember having was at Max & Erma’s. It was their Triple Chocolate Cake which I shared a piece with 2 other people and we all had our fill. It was decadent, delicious, and of course super chocolatey and I have been searching for that recipe ever since. Why does no one seem to have a copycat for it…. WHYYYYY?!
I could go for that cake right now.
But since the recipe is eluding me I think I’ve found a close replica. I fell upon these chocolate layer cake recipes while searching the web. By the way, have I mentioned I’m moving (only a few thousand times)? So I haven’t actually tried these recipes out myself. Let me know if these work out and which one you liked the best if you all decide to try it!
First a submission to allrecipes.com. I often find myself on this site, and have just finished up the year’s subscription to the magazine. I love both. This recipe was submitted by Denise on Allrecipes and has 4673 reviews with an overall 5 star rating. This “Too Much Chocolate Cake” I think has met its match. There’s never too much chocolate for me!!!
The next recipe is from Sally’s Baking Addiction, in her own words “a self-taught, mom-taught, grandma-taught baker.” I absolutely love that description, and those are always the best teachers. Her cake makes me want to drop everything and make it right now…. but this place is a disaster area, and I packed my measuring cups. Here’s her Triple Chocolate Layer Cake
Last, if you’re like me and you have an itch to scratch for chocolate cake… you can resort to this easy one serving option. A recipe from Sweet Little Bluebird that has no eggs, milk, or butter. I’m going to run to make this right now…. Crazy Cake in a Mug.
Have your chocolate cake and eat it too! Happy National Chocolate Cake Day to all!!!!
