Look no further for the perfect GO-TO Chocolate Cake Recipe.   I first discovered this cake, when I was hosting my future in-laws for St. Patricks Day.  This was the first cake I ever attempted to make from scratch, and I’m so glad that I was fearless in the kitchen.  I really consider myself more of a vanilla girl – but wow, this chocolate cake delivers on so many levels.

  1. Hi tangent – thank you so much for the lovely reblog – I’m flattered, especially because my background is in marketing/branding. I hope and anyone who visits your blog gets a chance to make this cake – it seriously is a home run!

  2. Hi, no problem, it looks like a great cake and we are definitely going to try it!

    • I promise – it will not disappoint! Love to hear about your results.

  3. yay – so glad you were able to try it. With so many amazing flavors melding together – this is definitely the cake to take a gung ho approach! Not too sweet right? – but perfectly chocolatey.
