There are so many amazing cake recipes out there, but not many of them will tell you how to bake a cake with chocolate that’s fool-proof and straightforward to make.

This chocolate cake is also an excellent idea for special occasions including birthdays and anniversaries. Baking cakes is an art, and you can always use your creativity by adding the ingredients of your choice. For the frosting, you can whip Nutella instead and add crumbled Toblerone bar or Hershey's chocolate shavings with a fresh round of berries. You could go overboard with heart sprinkles and put dreamy, pink strawberry icing or raspberry jam between the layers. You could also frost it using cream cheese and chocolate whipped together for a tangy twist. These are fabulous kids birthday cake ideas you might like to try out as baking cakes can be fun when you experiment with different flavors. Whatever you decide to do, this Chocolate Cake recipe will add that sweet charm the occasion. To make this recipe healthier, you can replace the cocoa powder with dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate is an incredible source of antioxidants and improves cardiovascular health. It also contains other essential nutrients like fiber and iron. Vegans can use Ghiradelli brand of chocolate chips which is dairy-free and a favorite brand among the vegan community.
