For those looking to specifically get the recipe for Chocolate Cake, you will first need to make sure you either have a TV in your house, or you can visit someone else’s house with a TV in their living room.
When you’ve found a TV, turn it on by approaching it, and there will be a few channels you can choose from. You will want to select ‘The Queen of Sauce’, a cooking channel that provides you with new recipes. Here are the specific days when the Chocolate Cake recipe will be available:

If you are currently in Year 2, you will unfortunately need to wait until Year 3 rolls around because the recipe available on the 14th of Winter will be for Lobster Bisque.

- 1x Wheat Flour
- 1x Sugar
- 1x Egg
You can purchase Wheat Flour and Sugar from Pierre’s General Store or JojaMart, or you can craft them using a Mill. Eggs can be obtained from any White, Brown, or Blue Chickens that you are raising within a Coop on your farm.
