Chocolate Mocha

at
chocolate-mocha

I found this chocolate cake recipe in a magazine long time ago and somehow I always come back to it, to me it is perfectly light and moist.  You can control how intense the chocolate taste should be, I always want mine quite intense so you just use less chocolate powder if that is not what you want. I also normally use Valrhona 100% Cacao which I absolutely think gives the best taste. You can use this recipe for both cakes and cupcakes. Here I use it for cupcakes and have topped it with mocha frosting.
