It's always a good time for chocolate cake. You don't need to wait for a holiday or birthday to have an excuse to bake a chocolate cake recipe. Chocolate cake appeals to so many people -- the cake lover, chocoholic, sweet tooth -- that you know you'll make everyone happy when you bake one.

We love how versatile chocolate cake recipes can be. You can make chocolate cake deep, dark and dense when you're in serious need of chocolate or one that's light and airy, when something more delicate is required.
