The BEST Chocolate Cake EVER!!!!

Oh. My. GOSH. you guys!!!

I finally put up my Family Famous Chocolate Cake Recipe!!!!  This cake is literally requested for EVERY single occasion.

My mother’s birthday (Hi, Mom!!! ) was Jan. 25th and she told my daughter to ask me to make her this cake.

And of course….I did.

It hits the spot as soon as you eat it! It SUPER moist and just the perfect sweetness. NOT too sweet.

When baking this cake, there’s a lot more liquid that goes into it than the average box cake or the average cake, period. I mean we have coffee ,eggs, buttermilk ,oil…yes…oil.  ( This gives it a really nice texture ) and of course…vanilla.

My husband isn’t too fond of sweets BUT this is one of his exceptions.

Same thing with my daughter. She will NEVER finish a cupcake BUT she will finish a slice of my cake.

As for me…I can eat the whole cake in a day

( Don’t judge! )

You’ll understand why.

The best part about it is…it’s super simple to make. So you can have this whenever you feel like you want to have something cakey at 1am .

( Don’t judge…again.) 

Your kids will also love you more after this.

( Trust me…it’s proven. My kids love me more after eating this. May be the solution to relationships too!! ) 

How about I spare you the wait and get sharing the recipe, eh?

Wren made an intro in the video that I have on the page., She was super excited! Make sure you subscribe to the channel because you’ll be seeing more of her in the videos. ( She’s current’y rehearsing her next intro!! )

2.Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk or hand mixer ( Whatever you got! )

3.Add all wet ingredients and mix on medium speed ( so that everything doesn’t splash!) Batter is going to be thin.

4. Pour into pans evenly.

5.Bake in oven for about 30-35 minutes. Every oven is different so just pay attention to them.Once your knife or toothpick comes out clean…

6. Take cakes out and let them cool completely!!!! ( These cakes are super moist so if you take them out too early, they will break.)

7. Go ahead and frost! If you want my buttercream frosting then continue reading.
