Chocolate Cake Recipe

Most baking projects call for similar ingredients. Before taking on any new baking project, make sure you read the recipe in advance. If you keep most of the basic ingredients on hand, you will be set. But, if from your cookbook you choose a white chocolate and cranberry cookie recipe, you may have to pick up a few more items from the grocery store.

Most home baking recipes have either butter or margarine as an ingredient. Some recipes will actually say you can use one or the other. Butter is a little richer than margarine, but you can make a swap with these two. If a recipe asks for butter assume it crostata alla nutella means unsalted if it doesn't specify. If you don't have unsalted butter and want to substitute it for regular, omit the salt in the recipe.

Mound mousse on top of cake and smooth out top and sides so that it is in same shape as cake. Place in freezer for1 hour or until mousse is very firm, but not frozen rock solid, then move to refrigerator while making ganache.

Instead of frosting, you could add a whipped cream topping to a crostata alla nutella. To make the topping, you would use heavy cream and whip it with an electric hand mixer. Milk will not work as a substitute for heavy cream because the cream will whip better and will have doubled in size after you finished whipping it. You can change from whole milk to 2% milk, but keep in mind that you may change the flavor and richness a little by making the swap.

Wacky Cake remains moist and delicious 4-5 days, if kept covered, but chances are it won't last that long around your family. My family loves it still warm from the oven with whipped cream or cool whip topping. Frosting is optional. It's wonderful just as a finger food.

Now you get to do the fun part, which is assembling the cake. On the bottom layer put a dam of icing around the edge and your filling in the center and smooth to level, repeat for 2nd and 3rd layer. Now you have a three layer chocolate raspberry cake that is to die for!
