The Many Flavors of Chocolate Cake: 10 Different Variations!

I think it is just great that we celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day. (This year on Monday, January 27.) In my opinion, chocolate cake is so delicious it needs its own special day. It shouldn’t just be lumped in with “dessert day” or “cake day.” Don’t you agree?

But there’s not just one flavor of chocolate cake. The flavors are limitless based on the ingredients in the cake. I have included chocolate cake recipes made with jam, Guinness stout, bourbon, white chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and zucchini to name a few.

Check out the recipes for these 10 delicious cakes to experience the many flavors of chocolate cake that my friends and I have made.
