Decadent Chocolate Cake Recipe

Last week, when my parents were in town, my dad and I made a decadent chocolate cake! Baking has been a favorite tradition between by dad and I since I was a teenager. Growing up, my dad and I would bake chocolate chip cookies together every Sunday. I now carry the tradition on with my daughter, Ellie. This weekly tradition, was something I looked forward to and really connected us. My dad has a sweet tooth and a heart of gold.

He taught me many valuable lessons through our weekly baking sessions. “Clean up as you go so you don’t have a huge mess at the end”, he would say. “Follow the recipe with exactness to get the best result. The same is true in life. Follow the commandments with exactness to get the best result.” He taught me that time together was special. Traditions matter. It’s the small things that matter. 

Since Father’s Day is coming up, I thought I would share this decadent chocolate cake recipe with you! I figured you could make it for a special dad in your life!

Decadent Chocolate Cake Recipe

The first time I made this recipe, I made it with my sweet friend. We made two 6″ cakes so we could give one to each of our family’s. Baking is so much more fun when you do it with someone you love! So, this recipe will make one 8″ two layer cake or two 6″ two layer cakes. You could also make cupcakes if you wanted, just decrease the baking time.

The frosting is wickedly delicious! I’m just giving you fair warning! It is addicting!!! I think the frosting would also make a delicious fruit dip. Decadent Chocolate Cake RecipeDecadent Chocolate Cake Recipe chocolate cake white cake stand Decadent Chocolate Cake Recipe best chocolate cake recipeDecadent Chocolate Cake Recipe
