Today for Friday Faves, we are getting you ready for January 27, which is Chocolate Cake Day! Not that we need a day to decide to bake and eat chocolate cake, but here is a great excuse! We've shared a number of chocolate cakes here on the blog, but besides those, today I have gathered some favorites from some of our blogger friends to share with you as well! You can just click on the links to their blogs to find the recipes or to the posts that we have shared before. But, hurry, you only have 2 days to choose which cake (or 2) you will bake! (After all, it is a holiday!)
What is your favorite Chocolate Cake?
I had almost forgotten about this cake that I developed for Alicia and shared in this post about our favorite birthday cakes! I need to revisit it and make it again!
I love the beauty and the story behind this cake from Shelley Webb, internationalcaregiver.com
She made this cake herself for her wedding in 1983. Actually, she made 14 of them! I can hardly wait to make this recipe! Look at how rich it looks:
This Swiss Cake Roll originally posted for a Valentine's Day dessert. So, if you don't make it for Chocolate Cake Day, keep it in your back pocket for Valentine's Day. Actually, any of these cakes would be perfect for Valentine's Day!
I love a good Texas Sheet Cake and this one from Blogging Grandma Candy Cage at Candy's Farm House Pantry looks just like a Texas Sheet Cake should. It would be perfect for a large family gathering on Chocolate Cake Day.
Shared by Pam Marston at Natural Essentials at Yellow Banks shared this iconic recipe. The marshmallow cream makes this cake decadent.
Maddy was so happy when I shared this Vegan Chocolate Cake that is moist and decadent. The eggs and any other animal products are truly not missed!
The wonderful thing about baking with zucchini is the moisture it adds to the recipe, not to mention it makes you feel like your cake is really healthy so you can eat an extra piece! Thanks to Nancy on the Home Front for this great recipe!
Last but not least we couldn't share a list of great chocolate cakes without sharing this Perfect Chocolate Cake. It is so dense, moist and chocolaty! The perfect cake for Chocolate Cake Day!
Plus 1 update!!!
After going live with this post, Alicia reminded me that I had left out the Black Forest Cake! I couldn't do that! This decadent Chocolate-Cherry Cake is perfect for a chocolate cake celebration! It also reminds me of my days in Germany!
There you have it, 9 choices instead of 8!
Now, how do I choose which one to make? Which one do you think you would like the best? I'll let you know on Instagram and Facebook later. In the meantime, make your cake, and eat it too!
