A super moist, rich and decadent chocolate cake that everyone will love!
Hey guys it’s Jessica from Sprinkle Some Sugar! If anyone knows me, they know I have a pretty unreal obsession with chocolate. It’s a mystery how I am not 3,000 pounds by now. But what comes with being a chocolate connoisseur, is knowing the good recipes from the bad. This amazing chocolate layer cake is one of my favorites and my go-to for birthdays and special occasions! Every person in my family requests this cake for their birthday, it’s pretty funny!
Depending on where I am taking the cake, sometimes I’ll change out the regular cocoa powder for dark cocoa powder in both the cake recipe and the frosting recipe to make the chocolate flavor even deeper. The way I have it in the recipe here for you guys today, is more of a devil’s food cake flavor. Super chocolate-y, sooo moist and delicious. It is literally the perfect chocolate cake.
By adding hot coffee to the batter, it really intensifies the chocolate flavor and brings it out in a whole different way. You cannot taste the coffee at all but if you are serving this cake to kids, you might want to keep that in mind. 🙂 Hot water is just fine to substitute and is what the original recipe calls for.
The frosting comes from a frosted brownie recipes on my site – SO GOOD. It’s so creamy, super chocolate-y and delicious. You guys are going to love this cake!
