Secrets to the Best Chocolate Cake
Since Chocolate cake is the favorite, let's talk about what makes it better. Chocolate Cake is The Berlin Baking Co’s special favorite and we have a recipe with four secret ingredients that we absolutely love.
The first secret ingredient is special Dutch processed cocoa. I won’t get into the details, but if you want to Nerd out, check out this baking blogger we like.
Another secret ingredient we use in our chocolate cake is coffee. It isn’t perceptible in the chocolate cake but it really enhances the chocolate flavor.
The third secret ingredient we use in our chocolate cake is buttermilk. The acid from the buttermilk breaks down the gluten in the cake flour and gives the cake a softer texture.
The fourth secret ingredient. Well, we can’t give out all the secret ingredients. You’ll have to try it for yourself and see if you can guess.
