Best Chocolate Cake EVER
Everyone has a few "specialty" recipes, and this is one of mine. It is frequently requested for potlucks and birthdays, and it really is the best chocolate cake I've ever had.
The best part is that it's all done in one bowl--dump everything in, stir it up, and pour it into the pans.
I prefer ganache to the cocoa frosting. Ganache sounds fancy but it's just cream and chocolate melted together. Make it a little thick to frost in between the layers, and thin it with a little more cream to pour over the top and sides of the cake. Super professional looking, and super decadent.
This time I made it in small pot pie pans, so the kids (who have been watching way too much Cake Boss) could try using fondant.
