Easy chocolate cake: Our 5 favorite recipes

Fertiger Schokokuchen auf einem Teller mit einer Gabel
New Year's resolutions are right and important. But instead of giving up something completely - chocolate for example - (who would come up with such a crazy idea?), we have a better idea. How about paying attention to better quality instead of sacrificing quality? Especially when it comes to chocolate, everyone benefits: people in the countries of origin, nature and ultimately you too, because really good chocolate tastes a lot better. Then in combination with flour, eggs and milk... and you have the perfect chocolate cake. We have put together our favorite chocolate cake recipes for you here. Soon we will also be sharing our interpretations of it on our blog, at the moment the recipes are (unfortunately) only available in English. Happy Baking!

Ottolenghi take-home cake

Oldie but Goldie: Of course, the list of the most delicious, simple chocolate cakes should not be without the master of sweet pastries: Yotam Ottolenghi. We are big fans of his baking book 'Sweet' and can't wait to visit one of his shops in London again hopefully in the not too distant future and sample all the delicacies. For the moment we have to get by with our own creations and luckily that works really well with this recipe. The time-enjoyment ratio is at Ottolenghi's Take Home Cake really very high!

Yossy Arefi's Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cake

Yossy Arefi recently published a great baking book called 'Snack Cakes' which we definitely recommend you read. This easy chocolate cake with pumpkin pie spice is exactly what you need on gray days like these. We think it's particularly great that the cake contains spices that are mainly found in Mexican chocolate. The cake tastes best with a simple cinnamon-sugar glazing or with the described pumpkin spice.

Nigella Lawson's (vegan) chocolate cake

This cake is so delicious that even anti-vegans don't even realize it's vegan. Nigella Lawson makes the cake with coconut oil and coconut butter, but of course you can also make it with the oils and fats of your choice. We have already tested different versions and were extremely satisfied with all of them.
