A traditional homemade chocolate cake is something that is not going to go out of fashion too quickly. There are a lot of recipes that you may have come into contact with over the last couple of years. Some of these were invented a hundred years ago and are still going strong and others just seem bland and boring at this point.
The sound of chocolate cake is one thing that really makes you lick your lips. Of course, a winning recipe does help because there is nothing worse than taking a bite of something that is actually dry and horrible inside. The nice thing about this cake is that you can do so much with it. It can be made in a multitude of ways, from something really simple without the bells and whistles to something that is stacked up high, coated with a thick layer of ganache and cherries. Of course, the icing is another story completely. This can make all of the difference.
I think we have come a long way, since 1674 when people starting eating chocolate in the form of cakes. Since then, a lot of creativity has been introduced and you are probably going to find a lot more designs and flavors come up as time goes by.
Here is one divine chocolate cake you can make:
For this recipe, part of the reason why this homemade chocolate cake is such a winner is because it is so moist. This is helped with the syrup. Remember, rather have your cake too moist than too dry. This is a very easy cake to make, but it still leaves you coming back for more. If you are not confident with your cake baking, but you still want to come out there with a classic, then this is a good way to start off.
