Rich Chocolate Cake Recipe

Copper Spoon Cakery's Rich Chocolate Sponge recipe is now available for you to bake at home!


This rich chocolate cake recipe is a staple in my kitchen and is the perfect base for so many buttercream and filling flavours.


What's included in the Rich Chocolate Cake Recipe?


The use of melted chocolate and cocoa powder in this sponge cake recipe results in a deeply chocolatey cake, with a brownie-like density. I have received so many comments over the years that it's the "best chocolate cake" my customers, friends and family have ever tried!


This is a PDF download recipe with detailed instructions and measurements on how to bake the perfect amount of Rich Chocolate sponge cake for a 6 inch 3 layer cake. You could also convert this recipe to make 18 mini cakes! Use the same silicone cake moulds I use for cute square mini cakes.


Please note that this is for the sponge recipe ONLY - you can purchase the Swiss meringue buttercream recipe I use to layer this cake.


Once purchased, this recipe is for your use only, sharing of this document is prohibited.
