One of the Best Dark Chocolate Cake Recipes

This tasty gelatin-topped gelatin cake recipe is easy to make. There are two flavors of gelatin used to make this cake and they are strawberry-kiwi and cherry. If you cannot find strawberry-kiwi gelatin, just use strawberry gelatin instead. The simplest way to make a cake is to use a cake mix. These are very easy to use. If you lightly tap the filled cake pans on the counter before baking the cakes, this will release any small air bubbles from the batter and make the cake smoother.

This flavorful dark chocolate cake recipe is made in several layers to add to its appeal and the fruitiness is so nice with the other flavors. Banana tends to be quite an overpowering flavor if you use too much of it, so just use half a banana to enhance the banana flavor of that layer. If you are really keen on bananas, of course, you can use a whole one to give more banana taste to this dark chocolate cake recipe.

This cake is like a cross between a cake and a pie, in that it is a combination of smooth textures and crispy ones. This dessert is sure to go down well with your family and they will love the strawberries, banana and dark chocolate taste all combined together in one fantastic dessert.
