The cats out of the bag!
FINALLY, My Mom shared her It’s really good, really delicious chocolate cake recipe!
For years, my Mom has been making this chocolate cake, and for years I thought it must be so difficult and I can’t even attempt to make it.
You know, I really am not into baking much.
Well, the secret is out. It really is not difficult at all, and when I share with you this truly MOST delicious chocolate cake recipe you may want to keep it a secret for years to come with your family.
For many birthday’s and holidays this would be a huge request, Please Mom can you make the chocolate cake.
Her homemade Apple pie is nothing to sneeze at either. I can’t give you that recipe though, because she does NOT measure a thing.
I just know she uses a lot of Apples, and they have to be Cortland apples.
Back to the cake. It’s extremely heavy, in weight, you pick up this cake and it feels like a lead sinker.
However, eating it, it is light and fluffy and totally feels calorie free
A bundt pan is a must! or tube pan is fine too.
Chocolate frosting is a must! I think, but it is optional.
Now, here is the recipe.
You can sprinkle with green or red, or whatever color sprinkles per holiday you like. I only had black ones, so I popped those on for the photo.

Thanks Mom, for sharing your secret recipe 🙂 I’m so making this, but not until I have a houseful of teens to eat it all up so I don’t!! xoxoxo

You said to frost chocolate cake with frosting and cool whip? Do you mix them together or do you put the cool whip on and it melts into cake, and then u frost it?
No my Mom puts the chocolate frosting on first, them the cool whip which is optional, but hey why not add the extra calories.
It looks delicious!!! I’ll have to try it.
