Chocolate cake is a perennial favorite! It’s comfort food in dessert form. This triple chocolate cake is perfect for any occasion including birthdays, holidays and more! It’s rich, moist, chocolatey and delicious. Because this decadent cake makes 16 servings it’s perfect for larger gatherings but it keeps well for a few days covered with a cake dome. For added drama you could garnish this cake with fresh raspberries, strawberries or some white chocolate curls.
This cake also makes a great gift to welcome new neighbors to your block.
For variety see the note for the holidays at the end of the recipe.
To mix it up a bit:
For the holidays substitute peppermint extract for the vanilla. Add 1 teaspoon to the cake mix and 1/2 teaspoon to the glaze. Garnish with crushed peppermints.
