Classic Chocolate Cake

Day 58 Recipe 36
Instead of classic this recipe should be called the chocolate cake. For the rest of my life, if I need to make a chocolate cake I will be using this recipe! This cake was so good. I was surprised to find, that I had to whip up the egg whites separately for this recipe. But it definitely paid off in the end. The cake is baked in 2 layers, which are then cut in half to make 4 layers with delicious chocolate frosting in between. The cake was so tall when I was finished that when I went to put the glass dome over my cake stand, it did not fit!! The only complaint is that this recipe used a lot of dishes. And I had to wash my stand mixer bowl and attachment half way through to use for another step. But even if this cake had taken every dish in my kitchen to make... I am pretty sure that I would still make it again!! ;)
