Happy Whip It Up Wednesday! Today, I am sharing my go-to dessert. I make this cake a lot! In fact, this is one dessert that I just always try to keep the ingredients for in my pantry because everyone loves it. Anytime I need a last minute dessert, it seems that this one is the first one I think of. There’s just not very many people in this world that doesn’t like chocolate and honestly, this one just can’t be beat! I made this for our New Years Eve night. It’s a family favorite and definitely a crowd-pleaser and it’s just one of those that you can dump everything in your mixer and the mixer does all the work. It’s a win, win! And I love it because it’s really light, not really heavy and rich.
The recipe comes from Mix and Match Cakes by Shay Shull. I received this cookbook from a sweet friend for my birthday one year and have loved it! This is the very first recipe in the book. I would definitely recommend the book if you are a baker. It’s a fun one and I would say her recipes are super simple, each cake starting with a boxed cake mix. It was a great gift to receive!
I love to top this cake with a little whipped cream. It’s lip-smacking good, y’all!
It’s a great cake for any occasion! I added the sprinkles since it was New Years, but wouldn’t this be perfect for a birthday, too!? You can also top with a little dusting of powdered sugar and that makes it look really pretty, as well. I have also drizzled it with hot fudge and topped with strawberries. Several options and each one is delicious! Let me know if you make it!
