Ethan is definitely the sweet tooth of the family. For most of us this was to the point of “too much chocolate,” but he loved every single bite.
So it’s a chocolate cake with chocolate chips mixed into the batter, a layer of chocolate chips on top during baking, then a chocolate pan frosting like you might use on a Texas Sheet Cake or a Mississipi Mud Cake, and then a full layer of chocolate chips on top of that. It’s a lot of chocolate!
The recipe came from The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free. The frosting was actually perfect, but the cake was a little dry. If I make this recipe again I think I’ll substitute applesauce for the oils to get a more moist texture.
It was a busy day with dinner out and Dylan’s basketball game, but it was a good 12th birthday! <3
