Counterfeit Chocolate Cake - you can't feel GUILTY serving this...
So what’s up with this title anyway? You just KNOW you’re being bamboozled, don’t you? Give this a chance and you won’t regret it. There isn’t a better chocolate cake recipe out there. This cake is moist, rich, not too heavy, and it gets better the longer it stands. And best of all - there is very little chocolate! (But enough to put “chocolate” in the recipe title...) You might even encourage your children to give this a try!
Hang onto your hat when you find out the main ingredient in this recipe. Prepare yourself, and don’t turn your nose up at the beets! You won't taste them at all, and they make the cake very moist. This easy cake is rich, chocolate decadence at its finest. It is surprisingly light and not overly sweet so the chocolate flavor really shines through. You have to try it to believe it.
I’ve added photos of most of the steps in this recipe - so this is a no-brainer... Enjoy this terrific cake! And check the next post to see how to add a stabilized cream filling between the layers with a rich chocolate frosting.
