Say ‘I love you’ with the best Chocolate Cake

Black Magic Cake with Buttermilk Ganache

Black Magic Cake with Buttermilk Ganache

Valentine’s Day is this Sunday and you’re not sure what to get that special someone. (Or maybe you just want to treat yourself?)

Don’t go out and spend a gazillion dollars on some overpriced roses or flights of fancy. Make this chocolate cake. It’s super moist and screams, “Eat me with a glass of milk!”

This is the chocolate cake you can slather with ganache, or chocolate buttercream frosting, or white frosting, or nothing at all. You can make it as 2 layers, a 13 x 9 x 2 big cake, or as cupcakes.

This is the chocolate cake every baker needs in her or his repertoire. This is Hershey’s Black Magic Cake.

It’s so popular that other chefs, notably Ina Garten, have published this recipe under other names without crediting it to Hershey’s. Nonetheless, it came from The Hershey Company, so let’s give credit where credit is due. It’s a great classic chocolate cake!

Make this cake for Valentine’s Day and you will be St. Valentine.
