Double Layer Chocolate Cake

Meal Prep – ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Number of ingredients  – 9

Another great recipe that uses ingredients from my pantry.

Making the Recipe – ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This was a REALLY easy recipe to make only two steps really using the microwave to melt the butter and then combining the wet and dry ingredients together – my kind of simple!

Gently melt butter in microwave and let cool down
Whisk in eggs one at a time
Combine all your dry ingredients
Add in wet ingredients and give it a good stir.

All mixed up and ready for the oven!

Cooking Method 

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This recipe calls for two round cake pans

Spray with olive oil or wipe over with butter and then line with baking paper.

The recipe calls for covering the pans in foil for the first part of cooking so they don’t get too much colour.

Test the cake to see if its cooked – I found mine needed a little longer that suggested in the recipe, but just tested at 5 minute intervals until it was done.

They don’t look pretty but that’s what icing is for right? LOL


Taste – how does it stack up?

The Claim 

” This cake when baked just right is so beautifully moist”

Is it? Is it REALLY moist?

I would say yes it was definitely moist and very rich! It kind of reminded me of a mud cake.

Deliciously moist and rich! Very decadent.

I chose to mix mine up a little and I added a layer of raspberries (frozen and thawed).

Instead of Nicole’s chocolate icing, I decided to ice it with a keto cream cheese frosting that I just made up off the top of my head (I impressed myself LOL) *Literally just butter, cream cheese, vanilla and sweetener*

Happy birthday to me!
