I am being all domestic this summer and I am determined that I am going to win the chocolate cake baking contest at our town's fair. I live in the town where Mars chocolate is made, and next to the town where Hershey chocolate is made, so there are two contests. Of course, I have to use their brands in each recipe. The Hershey cake has to be chocolate and use at least 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. The Mars has to use their candy bars in the mix. The recipe I use for chocolate cake now doesn't have cocoa powder in it, so I need to come up with something else. I would just experiment but BF doesn't like chocolate so I can't get away with too many trials - I will have to eat them all myself! http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Double-Chocolate-Layer-Cake-101275 I thought this looked very good. I love that it used coffee. Anyone else have a tried and true recipe? At least the basics to start with?
