Instead of adding milk, you could also replace it with buttermilk because it combines a great character to the cake. Don't fret if you don't have buttermilk readily handy in your fridge. You can always obtain a batch in your kitchen using whole milk and vinegar. Just mix one cup of whole milk and a tablespoon of vinegar and stir it and let it rest for five minutes. The vinegar in the milk will counteract and thicken resulting in buttermilk. You can use this mixture to any cake recipes that ask for buttermilk.

For the frosting, you can mix Nutella instead of melting chocolate chips which is very easy to make. You can also coat the cake with crumbled Toblerone bar or Hersheys bar or any of your desired chocolate. These ideas are incredible and will come handy for kids birthday cake ideas. Whatever you wish to do, this Chocolate Cake recipe will continue to add that sweet appeal to any occasion.
