Thank you to Stonewall Kitchen for sponsoring this post! I was compensated for providing this recipe and blog post, however all opinions are my own.
Semi-Homemade Chocolate Layer Cake
Using pre-made baking mixes and ingredients is such a great way to shortcut the baking process without sacrificing any flavor or quality. That being said, using high quality ingredients is essential to making semi-homemade baking work out well!
This may not be a popular opinion, but you can still achieve showstopper quality results with packaged mixes. Yep, I said it!
Now, let me show you how.
Easy Two-Layer Chocolate Torte
This Stonewall Kitchen Dark Chocolate Torte baking mix comes with a package of dry ingredients plus chocolate chips. The recipe on the box calls for using these ingredients plus butter and eggs to make the cake batter.
To make this recipe, start by making the batter for the Dark Chocolate Torte baking mix as directed. But, instead of making one 8-inch layer of this rich, dense chocolate cake as instructed, divide the batter into two 6-inch round cake pans.
Two layers are definitely better than one, am I right?!
Homemade Whipped Cream with a Delicious, Fun Twist
Once the torte layers are baked and cooled, it’s time to fill them with a super easy homemade bourbon cherry whipped cream!
The whipped cream complements the richness of the chocolate layers by providing added lightness and amazing flavor to this decadent cake.
And, yes, this part is mostly homemade, but whipped cream is super simple to make, so bear with me.
Dust very generously with powdered sugar, add some of those bourbon cherries on top for fun and that's it! Your semi-homemade masterpiece is now complete.
