THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE
The Best Chocolate Cake combines cocoa and coffee to create a chocolate lover’s dream. The rich buttercream frosting makes it perfect!
Author:
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 2 cups sugar (400 grams)
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour (210 grams)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (64 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons King Arthur Flour Black Cocoa, optional (11 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda (12 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (4 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (6 grams)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (240 mL)
  • 1 cup strong black coffee (I used Green Mountain Coffee’s Vermont Country Blend) (240 mL)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil (120 mL)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (4 grams)
  • Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans or one 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa(s), baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix on low until dry ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  2. Add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for about two minutes; the batter will be thin.
  3. Pour batter evenly into prepared pans.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes for round pans, 35 to 40 minutes for rectangular pan or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
  6. Frost as desired. I used a simple and delicious Chocolate Buttercream Frosting from Savory Sweet Life. One batch was perfect for this chocolate layer cake.

Four-Flavor Sheet Pan Pancakes

Four-Flavor Sheet Pan Pancakes
Bake four kinds of pancakes on one sheet pan -- no flipping required! Preheating the oven to 500 degrees F may seem scary, but it mimics the heat of a hot cast-iron griddle, giving you an instant rise and golden brown color.
Author:
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Cake
Ingredients
  • 2¾ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten to blend
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup plus 1 to 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2¾ cups all-purpose flour (see Cook's Note)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam, preferably seedless, warmed
  • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 banana, halved crosswise and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • Maple syrup and whipped cream, for serving
Instructions
  1. Position the oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 500 degrees F. Whisk the buttermilk, eggs, salt, vanilla and ⅓ cup granulated sugar together in a large bowl until completely combined. Whisk the flour, baking powder and baking soda together in another large bowl until completely combined. Fold the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture with a silicone spatula until just combined (it's OK if there are a few lumps). Reserve 2 tablespoons of batter in small bowl and set aside.
  2. Brush 2 tablespoons butter on a 18-by-13-inch sheet pan and pour in the batter, using a spatula to smooth out the top. Tap the tray on the counter a few times to even out and flatten the batter.
  3. Stir the warmed jam in a small bowl until pourable. Imagine the batter in the pan divided into four sections (2 across and 2 down). Dollop the jam, about 1 teaspoon at a time, over the surface of one section. (You want to see red dots of jam sitting on top of the batter.) Using a toothpick or small skewer, swirl the jam into the batter, making a marbled pattern. Top with sliced strawberries.
  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over a second section of the batter. Arrange banana slices in a herringbone pattern over a third section of the batter and sprinkle the fruit with the remaining 1 to 2 teaspoons granulated sugar.
  5. Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and reserved batter together in a small bowl, and dollop, about 1 teaspoon at a time, over the last section of the batter. (You want to see a lot of brown dots sitting on top of the batter.) Using another toothpick or small skewer, swirl the cinnamon mixture into the batter, making a marbled pattern.
  6. Put the sheet pan in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 400 degrees F. Bake, rotating the sheet pan halfway through baking, until golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center of the pancake comes out clean, 18 to 23 minutes.
  7. Brush the pancake with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and let cool 15 minutes before cutting. Stir together the confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl and drizzle over the cinnamon swirl quadrant.
  8. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup and whipped cream.
  9. Cook’s Note
  10. When measuring flour, we spoon into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)

  9. Take the other half of the cookie dough mixture, and roll it into small balls to be used as a garnish.
  10. Refrigerate cookie dough layer and dough balls for 30 minutes.
  11. In a large bowl, mix butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt with hand mixer.
  12. Use a serrated knife to cut the round top off of the cake so the cakes are even and flat. Spread a light layer of buttercream at the center of the cake stand.
  13. Place the first cake on a cake stand, and spread a light layer of buttercream at the center.
  14. Remove cookie dough layer from the pan using the plastic wrap, and place layer on top of the cake. Spread a light layer of buttercream at the center of the cookie dough layer.
  15. Place second cake on top. Shave down the edges of the cake if necessary so that each layer evenly fits over the other. Add the remaining amount of buttercream to the top layer of cake, and frost the cake completely.
  16. Top with cookie dough balls.
  17. Slice and serve.
  18. Enjoy!

For the pound cake:
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Magic Mushroom Cake

Magic Mushroom Cake
Mushrooms are magical in more than one way. This cake, for starters.
Author:
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Cake
Ingredients
Cake
  • 350g all-purpose flour
  • 450g caster sugar
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 350g unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 350ml milk
  • 300g chopped mint slice cookies
Frosting
  • 2 batches chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream frosting
Magic mushrooms
  • 1 batch American buttercream frosting
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 5 drops red food gel
Grass Frosting
  • 1 batch American buttercream frosting
  • Light green Frosting: 4 drops green food gel
  • Green frosting: 4 drops green food gel + 2 drops blue food gel
  • Dark green frosting: 4 drops green food gel + 2 drops blue food gel + 3 drops purple food gel
Flowers
  • ¼ batch American buttercream frosting
  • 2 drops blue food gel
  • 2 drops pink food gel
  • 2 drops yellow food gel
  • 2 drops orange food gel
Chocolate Bark
  • 500g dark chocolate (melted)
  • 300g white chocolate + 100g dark chocolate (melted together)
Instructions
Magic mushrooms
  1. To make magic mushrooms set aside 2 tbsp of white frosting in a small bowl. Add cocoa powder to the rest of the frosting and mix until well combined. Split the frosting in half and add the red food gel into the frosting. Mix until evenly coloured.
  2. Fit the end of a piping bag with a large round tip and pipe long upright stalks of light cocoa frosting onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Chill
  3. Fit the end of another piping bag with a large round tip and pipe low, wide bulbs of red frosting. Add little blobs of white frosting to make the little white spot details. Chill the stalks and mushroom heads for about 40 min. Get them really chilled.
  4. Once the stalks are chilled use a very sharp knife to cut off the very top, creating a nice flat surface. Add a little dab of frosting on top of the stalk and stick the mushroom head on top. Keep chilled until ready to use.
Chocolate Bark
  1. Add a long piece of baking paper on a flat work surface. Drizzle the melted dark chocolate on top and use a large offset spatula to spread out the chocolate. Give it time to completely set. Use a fork to add some grooves in the set chocolate before you add some random light chocolate on top. Use the back of a tablespoon to spread it around. Let that second layer set completely before you use a sharp knife dipped in boiling water to cut different shaped rectangles of the bark. Kind of like random sized pieces of wood flooring.
Cake
  1. Please note: this chocolate cake recipe makes 1 batch. You’ll need two batches of chocolate cake to make this 6 layered cake. All other ingredients in the recipe are measured up to make the full 6 layer cake.
  2. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 140C (280F) or 160C (320F) for a conventional oven. Spray three 8” cake tins with oil spray and line the bottom with baking paper.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, bicarb soda and salt to a large mixing bowl and mix together using a hand mixer to combine.
  4. Next add the softened butter and mix on low speed until mixture reaches a crumbly sand like texture.
  5. Add the eggs and milk and mix on low speed until no dry ingredients are showing. Scrape down the bowl and mix for another 20 seconds.
  6. Fill three 8” cake tins with batter. I find using an ice cream scooper to help me do this makes it easy to distribute the batter evenly so that everything bakes at the same time.
  7. Bake for 50-60 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. If the pick comes out with wet batter, bake for a further 10 min at a time until baked fully. Allow the tins to cool for 2 min and then carefully flip the cake tins over on to a cooling rack to cool completely before using. Chilling your cakes overnight before decorating means they’ll be easier to trim and decorate. So I bake my cakes the day before I trim them.
  8. To trim your chilled cake use a cake leveller or large serrated knife to carefully trim the first layer of cake by trimming it in half. Then trim the crust off the second layer so that you end up with two layers from each baked cake. When trimming make sure you aim to get both layers of cake the same height. Keep that in mind when trimming the first layer so the next layer will still be the same height as the first when trimming the crust off. Once you’re done trimming your three baked cakes you should end up with 6 layers of cake altogether.
  9. To prepare crumb coat, add a dab of chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream frosting onto an 10” cake board or serving plate. Add the first layer of cake. Pipe a ring of frosting around the first layer and fill the centre of the cake with more frosting. Use a small offset spatula to spread around a little before adding some chopped mint slice cookies. Add the second layer of cake and repeat with the remaining layers. Add more frosting around and top of the cake. Use a your small spatula to smoothen out the top and bottom of the cake before using a cake scraper (otherwise known as a bench scraper) to smoothen out the frosting. Get it as neat as you can. This should just be a neat thin layer of frosting which is aimed at trapping any cake crumbs so that random bits of cake crumbs don’t show up on the outside of the cake. Chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  10. Add a fresh layer of frosting using a small offset spatula. Use a cake scraper to smoothen out the frosting around the sides. Then smoothen out the top using the cake scraper.
  11. Stick the chocolate bark all around the cake.
Grass Frosting
  1. Split the frosting up into 3 bowls. Use the colour formulations to colour the three different shades of frosting.
  2. Fit the end of a piping bag with a grass tip. Line half of the inside of your bag with the dark green frosting. Line the other half with the green frosting. Fill the centre with the light green frosting
  3. Pipe grass on top of the cake and around the bottom.
Flowers
  1. Split the frosting up into 5 bowls. Use the colour formulations to colour the 5 different shades of frosting. Fit the end of four separate piping bags with very small round tips. For the pink flowers fit the end of a piping bag with a small star tip. Pipe random mini blobs of each colour in the grass.
  2. Add the buttercream mushrooms on top to finish.

Pull-Apart Pool Cupcake Cake

Pull-Apart Pool Cupcake Cake
It's everybody into the pool for this fun summer dessert that requires little more than box cake mix, frosting and colorful supermarket candy.
Author:
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Cake
Ingredients
  • Cupcakes:
  • One 15.25-ounce box vanilla cake mix (plus required ingredients)
  • Three 16-ounce tubs vanilla frosting
  • Blue food coloring, as needed
  • Decorations:
  • 6 ounces blue candy-coated chocolates, such as M & M's
  • 14 ounces white candy-coated chocolates, such as M & M's
  • One 3-ounce package blue sweetened powdered gelatin (1/4 cup)
  • 1 striped sour candy belt
  • 11 graham cracker bears
  • 2 candy necklaces
  • 1 small jawbreaker
  • 2 gummy ring candies, such as Lifesavers Gummies
  • 1 chocolate chew candy, such as Tootsie Roll
  • 1 white flat taffy candy strip, such as Airheads
  • 1 green flat taffy candy strip, such as Airheads
Instructions
  1. Special equipment: two 12-cup muffin pans; 24 cupcake liners; a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip; an offset spatula; 2 drink umbrellas
  2. For the cupcakes: Line two 12-cup muffin pans with cupcake liners. Prepare the cupcakes according to the package directions. Transfer to cooling racks and cool completely.
  3. In a clean mixer bowl, combine 1½ tubs of the frosting and about ¼ teaspoon blue food coloring. Beat until smooth and no streaks remain, adding more color if needed to make a light blue frosting.
  4. Dollop a tiny bit of blue frosting on the bottom of the liner of one of the cupcakes (this will help anchor it to the serving tray), then dollop a generous amount on top of the cupcake. Anchor the cupcake to a serving tray large enough to hold all 24 cupcakes. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes, arranging them in a 4-by-6 cupcake grid with the edges touching.
  5. Using an offset spatula, smooth the blue frosting across the tops of the cupcakes, adding more as necessary, so it appears as 1 layer and the individual cupcakes are no longer visible. Smooth the remaining blue frosting on the sides to cover the cupcakes but not the liners.
  6. Put the remaining 1½ tubs white frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe the outline of a rectangle in white (about 5 by 7 inches) closer to one short edge of the cupcake grid to make the pool. Pipe around the outline of the rectangle all the way to the edges of the cupcake grid with white, leaving the inside of the pool blue. Smooth the white frosting with an offset spatula.
  7. For the decorations: Arrange a row of blue candy-coated chocolates on the white frosting around the perimeter of the pool, then arrange another row of blue candy-coated chocolates around the outer perimeter of the cupcake grid. Fill in between the 2 blue rows with rows of white candy-coated chocolates to make the pool deck. Chill the cake 30 minutes to set the frosting inside the pool.
  8. Meanwhile, bring ½ cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the blue gelatin until dissolved. Combine a mixture of water and ice in a measuring cup to make ½ cup. Stir into the dissolved gelatin until the ice melts. Chill the gelatin mixture while the cake chills. After 30 minutes, pour the gelatin into the pool. Chill until completely set, about 2 hours.
  9. Cut 2 strips of sour candy belt, each slightly larger than a graham bear, to make beach towels. Lay 1 bear on each towel and arrange them to relax by the pool. Add a drink umbrella over each to shade them from the sun.
  10. Cut the candy necklaces open where they tie to make 2 long strips. Cut 2 strips the same size as the length of the pool and arrange them over the gelatin for lanes. Gently pull out and discard the strings, keeping the candies in straight lines. Arrange 3 bears around a jawbreaker in the pool to play a game of volleyball. Stick a bear in each gummy ring candy for floaties and add to the pool.
  11. Cut the chocolate chew into 4 pieces crosswise to make legs for the diving board. Cut a 1½-inch piece from the white taffy and attach it to the legs to make a diving board. Set at the deep end of the pool and press a bear at the end, ready to dive in.
  12. Cut the green taffy into a rectangle a little larger than a bear. With the back of a paring knife, score lines in the taffy to resemble the puffy parts of a blow-up raft. Stick a bear on the raft and add him to the pool. Stick the remaining bears in the pool to hang out.
