Today I’m sharing our FAVORITE classic chocolate cake recipe of all time. This amazing Chocolate Cake from scratch is our go-to recipe, and always gets rave reviews! It is rich, moist, and absolutely delicious!
For years, we searched for the perfect chocolate cake recipe, but were never satisfied. They were either too dry, too crumbly, too soft, not chocolatey enough, and so on.
When we finally tried this cake, we knew that our search was over! It’s super moist, has the perfect amount of chocolate, and is sturdy enough to hold up to fondant if your design calls for it.
As a side note, this chocolate cake recipe (along with several of our other popular recipes) uses the Reverse Creaming Method of Mixing.
What is the Reverse Creaming Method of Mixing?
This is a popular method for creating a slightly denser, more melt-in-your-mouth texture. If you are new to this method, you may be interested in watching our free video here: The Reverse Creaming Method of Mixing.
If you would rather not go the Reverse Creaming Method route, don’t worry! We’ve also put this Classic Chocolate Cake scratch recipe into the standard Conventional Method of Mixing as well.
This also makes for a perfect chocolate cake! It’s the same decadent chocolate taste but with a fluffier texture. When making chocolate cupcakes, this conventional version is the recipe that we use! Here is the link:Classic Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

This doctored cake mix recipe is out of this world, and nobody would ever guess that it started with a mix. Sometimes you just need a quick and easy doctored cake mix recipe and this is one of our favorites.
As we mentioned earlier in our post, you can make this same scratch Classic Chocolate Cake recipe but using the conventional method of mixing instead of the reverse creaming method.
This is the mixing method that I use when making chocolate cupcakes also. You can find the traditional mixing version of this recipe here: Classic Chocolate Cupcakes (Although it is listed as a chocolate cupcake recipe, it works great for fluffy chocolate cake layers as well!)
