Dark Chocolate Cake

This simple cake recipe have been in our family for so many years. I lost count how many birthdays we enjoy eating this Dark Chocolate Cake in every party. My Mom use to cover it with a thick fudgy choco frosting.

And this cake is the very first cake that I bake onboard many years ago. I like the simplicity of it’s procedure and I never had a leftover of this cake whenever I baked.

If you’re baking cakes before, don’t be afraid to the thin batter of this cake. Just follow the directions below and you’ll be fine.

After baking, let the cup cakes cool completely. We use boiled icing for frosting. The best part is decorating it with your favorite sprinkle.
