Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Chocolate Cake & Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Ok, who doesn’t like chocolate cake? I mean, I guess if you are one of those people who doesn’t like chocolate, ok. But really, chocolate cake is so yummy! Here’s a recipe for chocolate cake from scratch that came with my kitchen aid mixer. I have used it a couple times for birthdays. There aren’t any artificial preservatives, dyes, anything like that in it that you would possibly get with a box cake, and it tastes so much better! This recipe is specific to the kitchen aid, but you could still do it with an electric mixer.
