Try These Tweaks To To Make Your Chocolate Cake Even More Delicious

You can make your chocolate cake even more irresistible!

There is a chocolate cake recipe out there that you can make, no matter what your baking skill is.

If you love the satisfying and comforting feeling that comes with eating chocolate, you're not alone. Chocolate, after all, has health benefits other than tasting really, really good. There is scientific proof that proves that dark chocolate, in particular, is an instant stress reliever, mood enhancer, heart-healthy, and loaded with antioxidants that have been proven to lower blood pressure and control insulin sensitivity. 

Even if you're not after all these benefits, chocolate really is plain delicious. If you're a big chocolate fan, you know there is nothing quite like a good chocolate cake. 

From a simple pairing with caramel to a tingling sensation you get from peppermint, let these flavored chocolate cake recipes expand your horizon when it comes to your love for all things chocolate:

1 Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake Recipe

2 Chocolate Peppermint Cake Recipe 

There is a candy available that makes the flavor combination of chocolate and mint addictive. If you love this flavor combination or want to try it in cake form, this chocolate cake infused with creme de menthe or a peppermint liquor or flavoring is what you should try. (Real vanilla extract, did you know, is vanilla pod-infused alcohol? That little bit of alcohol actually evaporates during the baking process. Besides, you won't be able to taste that tiny bit of alcohol, just the vanilla flavor.)

3 Milo Cake Recipe 

Almost everyone has heard of Milo. It's a malted chocolate milk powder that was usually dissolved in water (or milk for those who loved it richer!) for a delicious chocolate drink. It's totally nostalgic. So can you just imagine how that delicious drink would taste like if it were a cake? Chocolate and malted milk, you'll discover, is just as delicious when eaten.

4 Nutella Loaf Cake Recipe 

Chocolate and nuts is another ingredient combination that is really delectable. Hazelnuts, also known as filberts, are the nut that made Nutella famous. The chocolate and hazelnut spread is the basis of this nutty, chocolate cake. It's not just in the cake, it's also in the fluffy frosting!

5 Chocolate Yema Cake 

Yema is a mixture that comes in several forms: as candy, as a spread, and a flavor that creates milky, sweet desserts that we bet you would love to dig into. It's made with just three ingredients, too! Egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk create the thickened base made glossier with a few tablespoons of butter. This milky, creamy, and gooey spread is what tops this easy steamed chocolate cake so you get a taste of both with every bite. 


6 Steamed Orange-Chocolate Cake 

Fruit and nuts are commonly mixed together into chocolate bars. You can do the same thing, too, but we want you to also experience the delicious combination of fruit and chocolate another way. In this chocolate cake recipe, orange is the flavor that gets infused into the chocolate cake batter, for a spike of citrus flavor that's very complementary to the warmth of the chocolate.

It's easy to make, and it makes a stunning slice to serve to guests that still tastes decadent and delicious despite its seemingly simple look.
