How to Make the Best Chocolate Cake

We all know that chocolate cake is one of the easiest cakes to prepare but not everyone can make it deliciously, just like the ones that we have in pastry shops and restaurants. For you to bake chocolate cake that you and your family will surely love here is a chocolate cake recipe for you.

With a history that dates back to 1764, chocolate indeed goes a long way, proving that it is a favorite food among most people. It was first made when chocolate was first discovered, using ground cocoa beans using two circular millstones. It was further improved in 1879 when conching was introduced by Swiss Rodolphe. Conching is the process of making chocolate smoother and silkier which then made it better for baking since it mixes with batters completely. In 1930, there were chocolate cake mixes sold by the Duff Company in Pittsburgh. Chocolate cake became very popular during the 1980s and the 1990s wherein there can be other ingredients added aside from the chocolate such as tea, champagne, red pepper and a lot more. To this date, there are a lot of chocolate cake variants such as layer cakes, black forest cake, soufflé cake, fudge cake, snowball cake and a lot more.

One of the best chocolate cake variations is the black forest cake, which you can serve for both children and adults.

For the filling, you will need 2 cans of cherry pie filling, 3 cups of heavy whipped cream, 1/4 cup of confectioner’s sugar. Should you choose to have garnish, you can have milk chocolate curls or sweet cherries or other garnishes that you prefer.

Afterwards, place the mixture into the cake pan and then bake for about 45 minutes. When it is already cooked, allow it to cool then cut into three layers horizontally.
