Chocolate cake recipes are the ultimate indulgence, from a classic chocolate fudge cake to a chocolate twist on a Victoria sponge cake recipe.
Everyone loves chocolate cake and there is something so decadent about a chocolate cake made well, whether it’s a towering layer cake or an easy chocolate tray bake to share.
Our favourites include Malteser cake with malted chocolate frosting to match and a sticky mocha cake, which is dense and squidgy – more of a dessert than a cake in some ways. The towering chocolate ombre cake goes from light to dark in a tall cake that looks impressive inside and out. Chocolate and honeycomb come together in another cake for that crunchy, sticky combination that works so well. And of course, there’s a cake that everyone adores – the classic chocolate fudge cake, which is so easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. You can’t go wrong with this recipe. If you want to take chocolate fudge cake to the next level, try our salted chocolate version, which has a flavour profile that’s so on trend with its sweet-salty taste.
Got a special diet? Our chocolate orange cake is gluten free and dairy free, making a rich chocolate cake that everyone can enjoy. There’s also a gluten free and dairy free Black Forest torte if you’d like another option, but both are deliciously indulgent.
Don’t have time to make a full-on cake? Make a no bake chocolate tart, or pick the Nutella cheesecake, made more grown-up with the addition of dark chocolate and chopped nuts.
