Chocolate Cake Recipe - Not So Decadent

What a wonderful Christmas I had to spend with my family and now we get to bring in the New Year's in a couple of days. How awesome is that? Today, I am thrilled to be joining some fabulous bloggers and we are going to share our favorite recipes. This tour is going to be amazing, so make sure to stop by at the end of this post and visit the other ladies!

The recipe I am sharing is not my own, but one I have used for the last 6 years and my family and friends love this cake. This chocolate cake is so perfect because the cake and the frosting is not rich or too sweet, but just right. This cake will be a hit in your next party. You can find the cake and the frosting recipe to Perfectly Chocolate Cake here
I did not use the Hershey's cocoa powder but Chatfield's. Just use a good quality cocoa powder. Before adding your wet ingredients make sure to sift all the dry ingredients. Another tip when you add your batter to the cake pan make sure to tap the pan on the counter before putting them in the oven. This will remove all the air in the batter.

To change this recipe up I have added 1 tablespoon of instant coffee or add 1 teaspoon of grated lemon rind to the batter. All I have to say is delicious! If you don't want to make a cake just use your cupcake pans as well. Now, go visit the other bloggers for some more inspiration. See you next year. Happy New Year's!
