This is a chocolate cake to put other chocolate cakes to shame! The basic cake is built around some cake mix hacks to keep the baking simple but with true homemade flavor. The vanilla mousse filling is also very easy to whip up. Instead of having to fuss with frosting the cake you just pour an easy ganache over the top layer – chocolate and done! Please note that this cake is best served chilled and that the leftovers have to be refrigerated.
When it comes to boxes of cake mix not all brands are created equal. Personally, I always buy Betty Crocker as the quality is the best of all the name brands. I suggest starting with a good quality Devil’s food cake mix for the best results.
