Bitty Bakes

Death by Chocolate Cake

This Death by Chocolate Cake is just indulgent enough to tickle your taste buds.

It’s been many days since I baked anything with just Chocolate!. I wanted to try my hand at other flavors for my not-so chocolate lover fans out there.

I am a bit of a chocoholic and eating something sinfully chocolatey is one of my guilty pleasures. So, I make sure that whatever I bake whether it is cake or brownie or lava cakes or anything one of it will only be with just chocolate,as my craving for Chocolate never stops ;).

Check out my other Chocolate Recipes:

Hence, I made some time to make this luscious Death by Chocolate Cake. This Cake is super soft in texture and so satisfying. The addition of buttermilk is the secret to make this cake soft.  And, strong coffee just enriches the chocolate flavor!. This is yet another easy cake that just needs whisking of dry and wet ingredients. To make it more Chocolatey, I have topped it with silky Ganache. You can check How to make Ganache here.
