Chocolate cake

choco-cakeChocolate cake is one of my favorite cake. And I got a chance to try this for my friend’s birthday. I used the ready made mix. To bake home made base cake, check here. I made a couple of layers of chocolate cake and filled it with chocolate icing. It was all chocolatty and rich! Here you go…


  • Chocolate cake mix – 1 pack
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips – 12 0z pack
  • Chocolate fudge icing – 1 small tin
  • Heavy whipping cream – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Water – 1 cup

Method of Preparation:

    1. Prepare the batter according to the instructions given on the cake mix pack or check here to make home made base cake.
    2. Divide the batter into two portions and bake the cake in two baking pans of same size. This is for two layers.
    3. Melt the semi sweet chocolate in microwave for one and half minutesร‚ย  or check my chocolate truffles to melt chocolate without using microwave.
    4. Boil 1/3 cup of heavy cream, add it to the melted semi sweet chocolate and mix them well. Keep it aside.
    5. Make a sugar syrup with a cup of water and add 2 tbsp of sugar.
    6. Take the base layer of the cake and sprinkle some sugar syrup.
