National Chocolate Day

Today is National Chocolate Cake Day! The first time chocolate cake was created was in 1765, but the first recipe was published in 1847 by Eliza Leslie. Generally now, people do not make cake in their house by scratch; they may either order one or make one from the box. Cake box mixes didn’t come out until the early 1920’s, so before that time anyone who wanted a cake would have to bake it themselves.

It takes a bit of time, but it’s worth it as you’re able to eat a mouthwatering cake. Here’s a recipe if you’d like to try to bake one yourself.

Chocolate Cake Recipe

If you don’t want to take the time to bake and mix up a delicious chocolate cake, be sure to incorporate chocolate or chocolate cake throughout your day. You could add some chocolate to your pancakes or make some chocolate cupcakes. Remember to tell your friends about this holiday too, so you can celebrate together. Have a great chocolate cake day!
