The Best Chocolate Cake


I quite often make a batch of mini cupcakes, icing them and freeze them, just to have on hand any time. Makes about 6-7 dozen and you bake them for 11-13 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Here’s a way to make them that much cuter… Melt some dark chocolate and pipe it onto parchment paper in whatever shape you’d like. Let shapes cool, and put them on top of your iced cupcakes.

  1. yum, yum, yum! I haven’t attempted a GF chocolate cake yet! I think this will have to be the first! Did I say yum!

  2. Made this for my 30th Birthday yesterday and OMG Best. Cake. Ever! The sweet potato frosting had me a little worried, but those worries were soon diminished once I tried it! Yum yum yum! Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

  3. I made the cake exactly as written. It had been awhile since I had chocolate cake and its my favorite. I didn’t tell my family it was gluten free, they just thought I was being nice! I got up the next morning and was going to have cake with my coffee and IT WAS GONE! My husband and kids ate the whole darn thing. No more miss nice guy…next time I’m telling its gluten free!

    • Ha ha ha… I’m sorry I’m laughing, but did I not say that this cake is the best.:)
      Yes next time tell them and maybe they won’t steal it on you! I hope you at least got one piece.

    • I have not tried with this recipe but have with others. Let me know how it works.
