Hot Chocolate Cake: Your Recipe, My Kitchen

Hot Chocolate Cake

As I continue to make my way through the huge amount of bookmarked recipes I have gathered in the 2+ years I have been blogging, I have realized I will never get to the end.  As soon as I make one recipe, I find two or three more to replace it.  It just never stops.

Hot Chocolate Cake

This week, I am featuring Hot Chocolate Cake (which was originally called Hot Cocoa Bread) which I found on the blog Chickens in the  Road.  I figured it was appropriate for this time of year, especially considering where the mercury has been spending its time on the thermometer lately.

Because my family likes lots of flavor in their hot chocolate, I added mint and more vanilla and more marshmallow bits. The flavor was SO chocolaty.  It was completely like eating a solid cup of hot chocolate.  The cake was amazing fresh, right out of the oven.  Later, once it had cooled down, my sons had no problem scarfing it down some more.

  1. Delish. I was too lazy to change out of sweatpants and go to the store so I made a few changes. I used some p’butter chips and when it came out of the oven I poked some holes in it and spread some raspberry jelly over the top. I volunteer at an antique store who’s profits go to a food bank and on my days I always take a goodie for the customers. This bread was a hit. I can’t wait wait to bake it following the original recipe. BTW, if someone asks for the recipe I do give them your website. 🙂

  2. A year later, I know, but I just found this yummy recipe! For my family, I’ll have to skip the mint, tho. Think I’ll add some Ghiradelli 70% cocoa chips and some chopped almonds to make it a Rocky Road bread. 🙂 Thanks for this great recipe!
