Here’s to National Chocolate Cake Day.

Happy National Chocolate Cake Day! Did you know that it was a challenge to find a chocolate cake recipe? Much more common are the spice cakes, rum cakes, citrus cakes, etc. I’m not sure why, but my conjecture is that there just weren’t that many variations on chocolate cake? Or maybe the cookbook author figured that once you have a base recipe, no need to include others?

Anyways, for this recipe you have to make the chocolate first, then add it to the cake batter. Great recipe if you’re making chocolate cake from scratch! Even includes the filling and icing.
