Chocolate Cake Day is Wed Jan. 27, 2016 just about the time the will to keep New Year’s resolutions starts to wane. Any self-respecting chocolate lover with an oven and a mixer can make a cake at home for much less than $30, even with top-quality ingredients. Most cakes are very easy to make, in as little as 10 minutes of prep time. Here are 12 recipes to fulfill every chocoholic’s dreams.
An ultra-indulgent cake for a special occasion, Saveur‘s Truffle Cake is a diet disaster but heaven for a chocolate lover. It’s baked in a springform pan, then cut into three layers and brushed with a rum syrup. The light cake is really just a base for a chocolate truffle ganache that’s spread throughout the layers and over the top for a remarkable hit of richness.
Made in individual ramekins, these cakes ooze chocolate when they’re cut. They are rich and decadent but not too overwhelming, because they’re small. A version by the renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, via Mark Bittman in The New York Times, takes mere minutes to prep and less than 10 minutes in the oven. No icing is required, but ice cream or sorbet would go nicely. For this recipe, using the best-quality chocolate really makes a difference, and bakers can decide whether they prefer semi-sweet or bittersweet. (The ramekins go for as little as $8 for four at Bed Bath & Beyond.)
