This cake is rich and chocolatey

Top your decadent chocolate cake with homemade chocolate curls for the ultimate finish.

The world’s most decadent chocolate cake starts with the perfect chocolate cake recipe. This recipe uses cake flour (instead of all-purpose flour) for a tender crumb.

Sour cream keeps the cake extra moist.

Salt enhances the cake’s decadent chocolaty flavor.

Once your rich chocolate cake has baked and cooled (you will have three small round chocolate cakes), fill and frost the layers with a creamy, made-from-scratch chocolate frosting. The chocolate frosting is easy to make; it starts with homemade whipped cream.

After you whip the heavy cream, add melted chocolate and butter.

The best way to top a decadent chocolate cake? We like to use curls of shaved chocolate. You can make your own by softening a large piece of chocolate in the microwave on 50 percent power. Then, run a vegetable peeler along the block of chocolate to shave the curls off. If you’re not using the curls right away, store them in the refrigerator.

Best Homemade Chocolate Cake

Move over cafeteria lady and Principal Trenchpult! This cake is taking center stage, minus the sweat she added to her’s. (Remember that chocolate cake on Matilda? Please tell me you’ve seen that adorable movie)

Anyway, goodness yall, I do apologize for taking so long to get this chocolate cake to you. I usually only make it for special occasions (usually last minute), but this week my husband requested it out of the blue.

Perfect timing because I’ve been getting so many requests for a chocolate cake. It was about time I gave this chocolate poke cake and devils food cake some company.

What Makes This Chocolate Cake EPIC

1. The Buttermilk: Chocolate cake NEEDS buttermilk. It’s a match made in heaven and creates a very subtle tang that compliments the chocolate like a boss!
2. The Coffee: Coffee really bumps up the flavor of chocolate. You won’t be able to taste it in the cake, and it helps create a moister texture as well.
3. Oil: As much as I love butter, chocolate cake is best with oil. It keeps it moist and light.
4. Brown Sugar: Brown sugar belongs in chocolate cake. Not only does it add to the moisture but it works well for flavor.
5. Dark cocoa powder: Using dark unsweetened cocoa powder creates that dark and lovely color

This chocolate cake is everything a chocolate cake needs to be. Moist, dark, fluffy, and oh so chocolatey! It’s incredible the first day but seems to get even better (and darker) the next day.

It’s full of everything good, holy and fattening! I hope you aren’t dieting this time of year. I mean….that sounds like cruel and unusual punishment anyway with all these yummy holidays back to back!

There’s Thanksgiving and all that comfort food, Christmas with all those decadent treats and then New Years is right around the corner with those tantalizing cocktails. Mercy!

More power to ya if you’re on a diet sister! But I’ll leave this photo riiiiiiight here.

Not trying to bribe you to cheat on your diet or anything just saying. Look at it!! Just look at it!!

The chocolate buttercream frosting is EVERYTHING on this cake! It’s full of dark cocoa powder, butter, sugar, and heavy whipping cream. Yeah, you already know what time it is right?

Pass the milk!
