The Best Ever Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Hey you guys! Welcome to November or, as we like to call it at home, the month diets die are thrown out the window forgotten are put on hold.

There’s Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving was in October so our diets died a month early), Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and all the parties and get-togethers in between.

Phew! That’s a lot. We can’t serve the same thing over and over, can we? Where’s the fun in that?

So starting today it will all be about celebration cakes that you can proudly serve at these delightful gatherings, and goodies that you can make and give out as gifts. This chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting is just the delicious beginning. Let’s go!

The holidays

The Best Ever Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Oh how I love the holidays. Christmas season in the Philippines starts in September (I kid you not) when the weather turns a tad cooler and you start hearing Christmas carols played on the radio.

A lot of people say nothing compares to Christmas there and I tend to agree (and not just because I’m biased!). It’s really the most wonderful time of the year! Streets and homes are lit and decorated, carols are sung everywhere, everybody is just always in a jolly mood.

Christmas here, slightly less intense but I try to make the most of it. Our decorations are up (don’t judge me). And we already play Christmas songs. It brightens up my mood instantly (except when “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” plays then I get teary so we skip that).

We also love throwing parties, around the holidays especially. Have you ever been to a Filipino party? There is a real danger of dying from overeating there’s so much food!

Since I learned to bake, by default we almost always serve a cake that I baked. And this chocolate cake is one of my favourite things to make and eat. It’s been tried and tested by our guests and they love it too!

Team Chocolate?

It’s incredibly moist and chocolatey; I adapted the recipe from Hershey’s so I already knew going in that it would be fantastic (I mean, it’s Hershey’s!). I did make it even more chocolatey. If you follow my blog, you now that if I’m having chocolate, I want it to be chocolate, like these:

Anyway, so back to this cake. I then paired it with dark chocolate fudge frosting – oh my word this chocolate cake makes me question my loyalties to Team Lemon! It’s that good.

So if you’re already planning your menu for that next party, add this in. It’s a great way to end the meal and your guests will adore you all the more for it!

(Cake recipe adapted from Hershey’s and frosting recipe adapted from Sweetapolita).

Happy baking!

This cake looks pretty amazing! I'm craving chocolate today and would LOVE to have a slice of this. I'd even settle for a spoon of the fudge frosting. Yum!! Pinned for later.
