The Best Easy Chocolate Cake
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted an easy chocolate mayonnaise cake recipe that would deliver good chocolate flavor. To get there, we “bloomed” unsweetened cocoa powder in coffee to intensify its flavor and supplemented it with bittersweet chocolate. Although traditional easy chocolate cake recipes are made with mayonnaise only, we found that adding an egg to the batter gave it moisture and a springy texture that we loved.
