I know that the title "The Ultimate Chocolate Cake Recipe"is a big claim to make, but I think once you'll try this recipe, you'll know what I'm talking about.
There are a few ways of getting the chocolate flavour - you can add either cocoa or unsweetened chocolate or both.
The fact is that chocolate cake is a very popular flavour and chances are it is the very first cake one has made. Every baker has his or her own favourite version.
Although this recipe only uses cocoa, it surprisingly has a deep chocolate flavour. The addition of coffee helps heighten this flavour, though you can not taste the coffee at all. Using oil keeps this cake soft and moist, even when it comes direct from the fridge.
Of course, a great base cake deserves a great frosting. For the ultimate chocolate experience, I used 1-1/2 recipe of the chocolate ganache. Sometimes I will also use the chocolate version of this buttercream. Another brownie point (pardon the pun) for me with this chocolate cake recipe, is you can do it all in one bowl. Hey the less dishes I have to do, the more time I have to enjoy this cake. Yum.
