Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3

I am on a mission to find the perfect chocolate cupcake / cake. This was attempt number one and it was pretty darn good - but I think I can do better! The cake had a great flavour, but was a little dry (but again that could be my silly oven). The chocolate swiss meringue buttercream was yummy! Everyone loved it.

Anyone have any favourite chocolate cake recipes that are really flavoursome and also moist?

I have had success with the Martha Stewart's one bowl chocolate cake recipe, and my recent devils food cupcake was pretty moist and tasty. I am looking forward to seeing which one you find to be the best! :)

There was something that I didn't like about Martha's one bowl recipe - but I can't put my finger on it.

Is your devils food cake on your blog? I'm going to look now :)

I really like Martha Stewart's Mocha Spice recipe. It's not a basic chocolate cake, in any way, but the coffee, spice, and chocolate combination is soooo tasty.

Umm which recipe was this?

My faves are Martha's one-bowl and Hershey's "perfectly chocolate" cake (baked as cupcakes). All the recipes I've tried that call for adding hot water are always really moist and light! :D

it is very tough to beat (pardon the expression) chocolate on chocolate. i wish you were here -- there is a super cupcake store called sprinkles and i think you'd like it. and your recipes might give them a run for their money!!!

happy weekend!

I like the recipe from Ina Garten...
here's the site..

They are very chocolaty and I have made them with lots of different frostings and they are great.
