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 adding a pinch of salt to the chocolate ganache for a salted chocolate version that's really on trend.
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.
This chocolate truffle torte recipe (pictured) is so rich it's more of a dessert than a cake, but it's divine! The glossy ganache is very impressive.
