Delicious and easy to make, this Chocolate Celebration Cake with chocolate frosting is sure to please all chocolate lovers and is perfect for any occasion!
When making layered cakes I always weigh my pans so that I know I have the same amount of batter in each, this way you get even layers. Pour the batter into the pans, weigh each pan and adjust batter so that both pans are equal in weight.
Although the original recipe suggests baking this cake for 25 to 30 minutes, mine was perfect at 22 minutes. I strongly suggest you start checking at 20 to 21 minutes, just insert a toothpick in the centre of the cake, if it comes out with a few crumbs clinging then it should be fine. If the toothpick comes out wet then keep baking and check again in a few minutes.
If making a sheet cake, grease and flour (or line with parchment paper, and leave an overhang to facilitate lifting cake out of pan) a 9 X 13-inch baking pan. Spread batter evenly in dish; bake for approximately 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan on a rack. This cake will keep for a couple of days in a cool spot (do not refrigerate).
