THE INCEPTION OF CHOCOLATE CAKE

Until the 1830s in America and The United Kingdom, Chocolate was a popular beverage. Cakes, as we think of them all frosted with icing did not exist. In fact, what was popularly understood as “chocolate cake”, was a white cake.  Although chocolate began to be used in sauces, the primary conception of chocolate as a liquid treat continued into the beginning of the 20th century.

According to the Dover Post, the chocolate cake was born in 1765 when a doctor and a chocolate maker annexed up in an old mill. Then what happens? The cocoa beans are crushed between huge millstones to make a thick syrup. (Mmmm…sounds delicious) The liquid is poured into moulds shaped like cakes, which are now meant to be transformed into a beverage.  Years later, in the 1800s, an Austrian chef created a unique dessert for a prince. He had spread jam between two layers of chocolate dough. After that, he slowly poured chocolate frosting over the dessert. Thus the blessing of the divine: chocolate cake!!

O. Duff and Sons created the first cake mix box with an instruction to just add water to the batter.
