Chocolate cakes have come a long way since their humble beginnings. Way back when, Greeks served flat cakes with honey and nuts, and the Romans made "cakes" that more closely resembled pastries or cheesecakes. In the 1920s the first cake mixes were introduced, and in 1947 Betty Crocker arrived with her "just add water" mixes in Ginger, Spice, Yellow, and White flavors. Finally, in 1948 Pillsbury introduced the first ever chocolate cake mix. These days, chocolate is the favorite flavor. We've rounded up some of our favorite chocolate cake recipes with dulce de leche, hits of chili, and even black beans. Enjoy!
