Chocolate Cake Recipe


Recipe here: http://www.joyofbaking.com/cakes/SimpleChocolateCake.html Stephanie Jaworski of Joyofbaking.com demonstrates how to make a Simple Chocolate cake. This is my “go to” Chocolate Cake. I make it for family dinners, birthdays, and everything in between. I really like the combination of two types of chocolate. Unsweetened cocoa powder is used in the chocolate cake and a dark chocolate (semi sweet or bittersweet) is used in the frosting.

  2. This looks delicious, a quick question, the coffee can be instant coffee or
    it has to be natural coffee?

    Hello Mrs Jaworski, i have baked your recipe twice now and i plan to bake
    it again, it comes out so moist and light, very tasty, not too sweet
    allowing you to add more frosting for the sweetness and it did stay fresh
    and moist for a good part of the week, ok i lie we ate it before the end of
    the week 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your skills.

  4. Great recipe. Can one use Stevia or xylitol as a subsitute for the sugar ?

    I LOVE that you convert the volumes to european measurments!! Thank you! It
    can get so tricky otherwise.

    Can you taste the coffee? I’m not a huge coffee fan but I heard it brings
    out the chocolate but you don’t taste it

    Hi. I have a question. I am making 4 round cakes for a party, but I am
    making them 10 inches. What modifications do I need to make this recipe to
    fit the 10 in pan?

    if hungry

  19. I’m going to try to bake your cake…I’ve attempted several times in the
    past & failed..I mean failed horribly nastily my cake went into the trash!
    So but I don’t know maybe I’ll try again..

  20. Raeziel Gallegos says:

    what if I’m using a rectangular shaped cake pan? what size of cake pan
    should I use for this whole recipe?

  21. Shackz Stewey says:

    I have sweetened cocoa powder, can that be use instead?

  22. frenaloveschocolate says:

    Hi everyone. For those who have made this cake before, is it nicer to taste
    when you add coffee or warm water? Thank you

  23. Jawad Abidi says:

    how long does it take for the chocolate to reach room temperature after
    melting it? Thanks!
