Ok, so I am going to make a chocolate cake this weekend, and I want to make it extra-special. I am going to use the easy chocolate cake recipe everybody here raves about, and I am going to do a simple butter cream (or possibly cream cheese) frosting. Then I got it into my head that I could put some kind of filling between the layers. Except I don't know what to use. I was thinking maybe some kind of coffee or peanut butter, or possibly some kind of fruit filling. Does anybody have a recipe or idea to help me out? Thanks!

I'm a fan of chocolate pudding...I buy a box of organic chocolate pudding (the kind you have to cook, not instant) and I use Chocolate Soymilk instead of regular soymilk...makes a really rich chocolatey pudding that goes great with cake!

Some kind of peanut butter filling sounds awesome to me, too, but I wouldn't quite know how to make it into a cake filling.

Some people like cherries with their chocolate cake (I don't). You could use a can of cherry pie filling.

raspberry preserves between the layers, with some ganache filling....would have to find a recipe online for it.

Sliced fresh strawberries tossed with strawberry jam, and then dip some whole ones in chocolate and put them on the top.

I added half a cup of chocolate chips to my batter and used the VCTOW peanut buttercream for the filling. It was amazing.

Do you happen to have a copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World? It has a ton of filling recipes that sound delicious.

I do! I didn't even think about that. I'm going to go look at it right now.

if you wanna do peanut butter just chuck a spoonful or 3 into your buttercream frosting mix. if its too wet, add more sugar.



alternatively you could do a simple fruit glaze, drizzle or syrup with something like orange juice (fresh squeezed) or raspberries (microwaved then squished through a seive) heated with some icing sugar and then thickened up with arrowroot powder if you need to.

Warm orange or raspberry glaze. That is a fabulous idea.
