Chocolate Syrup Cake

Somehow, I ended up with a HUGE bottle of chocolate syrup in my house, that no one was eating.

We have ice cream all the time, but the chocolate syrup is forgotten.

Then one day, I ran across a recipe for a Chocolate Syrup cake.

To my surprise, it actually called for 1-1/2 cups of syrup!!

Then I read how easy it was to make and thought it was too good to be true.

But I tend to get overly excited about baking, so I ran it past my husband to see what he thought.

And he was skeptical.Β  He thought it was a little odd that it required so much syrup.

He even asked if perhaps it was a typo and it was supposed to be 1-1/2 tablespoons of syrup.

Um, really?Β  πŸ™‚

So after I laughed a bit, I went ahead with the recipe.

My kids squealed when they saw all the syrup go into the bowl.

My husband raised his eyebrow (still not sure how he does that).

I wondered how it would become a cake when it was so liquidy.

But 35 minutes later, we had a cake!!

I’m not sure why we doubted this poor cake, but if you like chocolate syrup, you’ll like the cake.Β  We especially liked it with my cream cheese frosting.

In fact, my kids liked it so much that I had to take these pictures at night, because I was afraid I wouldn’t have a piece to photograph in the morning!

  9. We, too, have an enormous bottle of choc syrup in the fridge. But, alas, we do not have the “no one’s eating it” problem. It goes on ice cream and in milk more often then I’m comfortable with (darn that husband). But this does look delish!! I hate taking pics at night (or in the winter, period, for that matter). How did you get it to look so nice in the photo??

    • I think we forget about the chocolate syrup because my husband insists on getting like 10 different types of ice cream, so the kids are overwhelmed. Lol. As for the pictures– thanks! I actually thought they were awful pics, and that’s why I was explaining that I took them at night. πŸ™‚

  10. I would’ve been a bit skeptical too. I’m so glad you took a leap of faith and made this recipe – your cake looks exquisite! So moist, light and chocolatey. I love that you drizzled it with even more chocolate sauce – you can never have enough, in my opinion!
