Every once in a while, I get the craving for a rich, moist easy chocolate cake. I stopped using box mixes a couple years ago, after I learned how easy it is to make it from scratch! Once you purchase the essential ingredients (flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, etc), it is easy to whip up this recipe, time and time again. Some extra benefits: you know exactly what you’re eating (no preservatives or hidden bad stuff), and it’s cheaper to make it from scratch.
This cake is sweet, but not too sweet. It has wonderful chocolate balance, with a hint of coffee.
When greasing the pans, I recommend trying a Misto spray bottle. You add in your own olive oil, and out comes non-toxic, pure olive oil to grease your pans with. It’s a much healthier, and much safer alternative. My family has been using it for almost a year, with great results!
