My Favorite Chocolate Cake

This chocolate cake is one of my most favorites, I always bake this cake if I'm baking for a party and it has never failed me! This recipe is by Ina Garten and is one of the tastiest chocolate cake you can ever make! I have made this cake many many times and I am yet to come across someone who does not like this cake. Everybody I bake this cake for, absolutely loves it! 

Best Ever Chocolate Cake

It is such a moist and delicate cake that it will just melt in your mouth! You don't have to soak this cake with any syrup as it's already so moist and soft. You can frost this cake and leave it in the refrigerator and it will still remain soft and moist!

To Frost 
I used chocolate ganache to frost the cake. You can use whipping cream or buttercream too. Check out this post on how to frost a cake easily.

1. You can bake this cake in two 6 inch pans too. The timings will reduce.
2. Make sure the sugar dissolves completely.
3. This is a liquid batter, if using a springform pan, make sure the edges close well. Otherwise your batter will run out.
4. Check out this post on how to make buttermilk for cakes
