While many things say, “I love you,” few things do it quite like baking someone a chocolate cake. Here, an array of expressions for your most heartfelt emotions.
Basic Chocolate Cake
One of the best darned chocolate cakes we've ever experienced. Seriously. (Would we tease about a topic as life-altering as this?!)
Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake
Does the true beauty of this cake lie in its stunning silhouette? Its intensely chocolatey chocolatiness? Or its lazy-day ease? You tell us.
Paleo Chocolate Cake
This paleo chocolate cake also happens to be gluten-free and, even more importantly, it tastes magnificent enough to rival any other chocolate cake, birthday or otherwise. Go ahead. Taste it and see.
German Chocolate Cake
Dark chocolate cake stacked high and smothered with gooey caramel and coconut and pecans? Don't mind if we do.
Vegan Chocolate Cake
No one will ever know it's vegan...unless you tell them. All you'll experience is chocolate through and through.
Red Wine Chocolate Cake
We're sorta surprised you're still reading this rather than clicking on the title given how compelling the ingredients in the title are...
Hershey's Chocolate Cake Redux
Certain things in this world inspire lasting love. Like this cake. An old-fashioned American classic for a reason.
Chocolate Bundt Cake
An homage to the chocolate cakes of yesteryear but with a contemporary dark chocolate oomph that turns tradition upside-down in the most pleasing possible way. You're welcome.
Chocolate Mug Cake
Molten, gooey, dense, chocolatey, and done in minutes with nary any evidence, er, we mean cleanup, this microwave mug cake is the solution to when you need dessert stat.
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Reason number #456 to love summer? This luxuriously decadent yet relatively marginally healthful chocolate zucchini cake. Seriously.
Flourless Chocolate Chile Cake
A subtle heat coupled with the richness of chocolate make this a failproof way to woo friends and family. Gluten-free, too, though no one will notice anything's missing.
Red Eye Devil’s Food Cake
A classic chocolate cake on caffeine, this impressive yet easy to assemble stack of chocolatey elegance takes its rounded chocolatey-ness from a cup of joe and its ample fudgy-ness fro ganache.
Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes
Vegan chocolate cupcakes. So scrumilicious and deep dark chocolatey no one's even going to notice they're vegan. Swear.
Chocolate Mocha Cake with Irish Whiskey
Mmmm. Mocha chocolate cake slathered with an Irish whiskey-spiked chocolate glaze. A decadent, grown-up cake good for whatever ails you.
Molten Chocolate Cakes
Sometimes called a volcano cake, this much ballyhooed molten dessert is, quite literally, bursting--er, oozing--with chocolate.
Blackout Cake From Ebinger's
Just like the much-ballyhooed chocolate blackout cake from Ebinger's in Brooklyn, this one has the same pudding-like filling, the same tender chocolate crumb, and the same rich, rich frosting.
Flourless Chocolate Cloud Cake
This lofty cake is so crammed full of chocolate and butter and air, there's no room for flour--although we made sure to leave space for ample swoops of softly whipped cream.
Homemade Hostess Cupcakes
Unequivocally better than those preservative-laden cake imposters you grew up on. Swear. And you can customize whatever you want to write on top, whether the name of your team or a sweet little something.
