The production procedure is very simple, you simply require to comply with the approaches that we have written on this web page. The adhering to are the stages of how to prepare Famous Brick Street Chocolate Cake (Almost).

I have never been to Brick Street Cafe in Greenville, SC. Which is the restaurant that apparently makes this most amazing of cakes. So I really have no frame of reference for how true-to-taste this copycat version is. But I can tell you that it’s really good.
All of the at-home recipes I found online for this cake insist that you must use a convection oven ONLY to get correct results. I used a traditional oven, because that’s all I have to work with, and I thought it turned out really well. Just something to keep in mind, I guess.
Another thing I didn’t do– you are supposed to use a tube pan (like, the flat kind). But I only had a fluted pan. However I think this just affects the look. Best I can tell, Brick Street Cafe’s cake has a distinct look to their cake, and this isn’t quite it. Just another FYI.
Be sure to buy cake flour and buttermilk for this recipe. I know it can be tempting to make DIY subs for those ingredients if you don’t have them ready on hand, but I would strongly encourage you to NOT use substitutes when making this cake.
When I was making the frosting, it started out super lumpy and I was worried that I had done something wrong. But after the first addition or two of powdered sugar, it smoothed right out!
