Hot Chocolate Cake

Here we are in a new year!  I can't wait to see what is in store for the new year!

Although I am looking forward to the new year, I am not much of a party girl.  We don't usually go out to celebrate on New Year's Eve, and just like to cocoon and enjoy the end of the holiday season at home.  But last night, my daughter invited us over to play games with the family and have a nice warm bowl of chili.  I had made this hot chocolate cake in the morning, just to try a new recipe, so I took it over to her house.  

Definitely a keeper!  I combined several different recipes into this one, and apparently it worked.  I couldn't taste it because it's definitely not gluten free, but everyone else loved it!  

I didn't fancy it up, just a regular looking grammy cake!  But after 5 minutes of bringing it out, it looked like this:

And there was a line to grab more pieces, so I jumped the line to grab a quick photo.  The only small part left at the end of the night was claimed by my youngest granddaughter, so I left it there for her to have today.  

Don't let the length of the recipe scare you, it is really easy to put together.  And the whipped cream frosting is SO GOOD!  Now that I did taste, and it was heavenly!  

The recipe is below, I hope you enjoy it!  I don't know why the picture is sideways on the recipe card, but I'm trying something new and it has me baffled!
If you click the button at the bottom that says View on Key Ingredient, the directions are organized and not all jumbled together.  I like the print feature on Key Ingredient, and I think I will be putting my recipes on there from now on.  I just have to get used to it!

I am linking up to Weekend Potluck over at The Country Cook.  Check it out - lots of fabulous recipes are waiting for you there!
I am also linking up to A Morning Cup of Joe Linky Party at The Cottage Market.  Hop on over there too, for some really great recipes and crafts!

Have a wonderful first day of 2019!


  1. I'd LOVE to get this recipe, but for the life of me, I CAN'T FIND IT?? Please hel.

    1. Hi Lora, The recipe is right above your comment, in the little box with a black band across the top that says Hot Chocolate Cake. Look down towards the bottom of the box and click on the green Expand Recipe button. That will show you the whole recipe. After you can see the whole recipe, look down again at the bottom of the box and click on the green 'View on Key Ingredient' link, because then you can see the whole recipe again and it is better organized.
      If that doesn't work, leave me a comment again and let me know. I can send you a recipe card with the recipe on it, if that will help!
