Sweet Giveaway: A Melange of Chocolate Cake and Brownie Mixes from Naturally Nora

Guess what? Today is officially National Chocolate Cake Day (which basically means that every other day is unofficially chocolate cake day, no caps involved).

And to celebrate, Naturally Nora, a manufacturer of all-natural, no-creepy-ingredient cake mixes, has kindly offered up a sweet prize for one lucky reader: a parcel containing a box of their chocolate cake mix, a box of their chocolate frosting mix, and a box of brownie mix. 

Having sampled these sweet mixes for myself during my week of birthday cake making, I can attest that they are highly delicious--and everyone knows that for a quick fix, it's fun to use a mix. (Yes, I just made that up)

How do you put yourself in the running? Simply leave a comment below stating your favorite type of chocolate cake. Perhaps it's German chocolate? Or Black forest? Or a simple chocolate birthday cake with fluffy buttercream frosting? 

The giveaway will close on February 2 at 12pm PST; the winner will be announced shortly after. US Entrants only, please. Oh, and if you can't wait for these mixes, find a retailer near you via the Naturally Nora site; you can also find them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

The favorite chocolate cake in my family is "Aunt Jane's Chocolate Cake". Aunt Jane is not related to anyone in my family, but a family friend who had been upgraded from the status of "Mrs. Fleming" to "Aunt Jane". It is a basic chocolate cake that bakes in an 8" square pan. and frosted with butter frosting. It has been a birthday favorite for (3) generations. On a recent family gathering with my cousins, who we had not seen in twenty years, we served "Aunt Jane's Chocolate Cake." I updated it by baking in an extra large cupcake pan. It brought me great joy when the cupcakes were served and there were big smiles around the table as we all recalled "Aunt Jane's Chocolate Cakes" we had eaten for past birthdays and special occasions.

My mom makes the absolute best wacky cake. Dense and sweet and covered in thick chocolate frosting. Mmmmm...

Ohh, chocolate cake. My kryptonite. My poison. What's my fave, you ask? Well, it's the combo that makes it. I like a moist chocolate cake for the base (nothing too crumbly or it won't support what comes next-- ) with fudge-y ganache to fill the layers and to ice it. Add some chocolate shaving or sprinkles as decoration? Even better. Yum. :)

Dense, fudgy, flourless (and gluten-free) chocolate cake with ganache frosting. Oh yeah.

I love a good moist and dense dark chocolate cake with peanut butter cup filling and chocolate ganache. YUMMMM! The richer, the better. I must make this! :-D
I do love German Chocolate, but perhaps the best is just plain, warm chocolate cake, no frosting or anything, straight from the oven into my mouth!

I love Sacher torte, especially the kind with raspberry jam between the chocolate cake and the ganache. So yummy.

Now I want some... :(

My grandmother's recipe for yummy buttercream icing on basic chocolate cake with raspberries on top and in between the layers. I have it for almost every birthday! Her frosting is amazing. And I am glad my mom has taught me to make it so I can do it for my own children some day :)
