My father is a man with definite preferences. There are only two kinds of music – country and western, dessert is a required course every night and all cake is delicious, as long as it is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. This chocolate layer cake is his definition of a perfect cake.
It never mattered what type of dessert was on the menu for a party at our house, there was always a chocolate frosted, chocolate layer cake hiding somewhere if you looked hard enough and knew which of Mom’s hiding spots to check.
My children have inherited my father’s love of chocolate cake. This cake is a frequent request in our house. Every time our house is filled with the smell of chocolate cake baking, I think of my Dad. I can’t wait for my parents next visit, so I can bake it for him.
This cake is quick enough to put together for a regular day dessert and tasty enough for a celebration.
For a special occasion, finish your cake with our Sugar Plum Fairy Cake frosting and ganache for a beautiful dessert.
