Rich Triple Thick Chocolate Cake

Cynthia Rivers Martinez


I got this inspiration from a Pinterest board. Theirs just didn't sound right so, of course, I tweaked it and made it my own. This is a very intense, thick chocolate cake. I can see where if it were cooked in a spring form pan it might be better.

After all the confusion about the Butternut flavoring I went back through a lot of my old, old family recipes and found that what we had always referred to at Butternut flavoring was actually Vanilla Butter and Nut. I've just started posting a lot more recipes so I will make sure I have it properly listed and used like in a family reference.

How to Make Rich Triple Thick Chocolate Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Cream together eggs, softened butter, sugar, evaporated milk and yogurt. Sift together flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Mix that into wet mixture. When all blended stir in choc chips. Pour into buttered bundt pan ( I can see where this would do well cooked in springform pan). Place in oven and cook for 80-85 min. Check towards the end to see when toothpick comes clean. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for at least 30 min.
  3. Mix together all the icing ingredients. Ice cake and top with handful of choc chips if you wish.
