The only chocolate cake recipe you'll need

May 5, 2019

 

Chocolate cake - my all time favorite!

I don' t really like pies, and other cakes are good, but give me a chocolate cake that is moist, full of good chocolate taste and I'm a happy girl! I love the texture of a cake, the way the icing and the cake just combine so beautifully in your mouth for a flavorful bite - are you drooling yet? So when I found this recipe that claimed it would be 'the only recipe you'll ever need', I had to try it. We had a staff birthday this week, so it was the perfect opportunity to try this cake and get reviews. Guess what - it is the only recipe you'll need. It was incredibly easy, moist and delicious - checked all my boxes!

 

 

Chocolate Cake

 

In a large bowl (I used the bowl from my kitchen Aid mixer as you will be beating the batter)
( sift together (no sifter, just put the ingredients in the bowl and give it a whisk)


2 c. flour (not densely packed-spoon the flour into the measuring cup, to give it a bit of air)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. b. powder
2 tsp. b. soda
3/4 c. cocoa
2 c. sugar

 

Add in and beat together for about 2 minutes
1 c. veg. oil
1 c. hot coffee (just intensifies the flavor - doesn't make the cake taste like coffee)
1 c. milk (use full fat, if you can)

 

Add in
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat for another 2 minutes

 

(batter will be thin)

 

Pour into your pans that have been greased and floured (I was making this into a layer cake so I lined mine with parchment paper and lightly greased the paper.

 

Bake at 350 for
9x13 about 45 minutes
2 9" rounds about 25-30 minutes.

 

Cool for about 15 minutes and remove from pans, if you are making a layer cake.

 

Icing 

You can use whatever icing you like, but I used this new tiramisu mix from Gourmet Village (we have this at Crocus & Ivy). I can't tell you how much I love this product. It is intended as a dessert dip, but when I tasted it, I knew it would also be a perfect icing for a chocolate cake. It is light, creamy and has a coffee flavor that is not overpowering. I also grated some leftover Roger's Chocolates Solid Easter eggs (on sale in the shop) over the top to add a bit more chocolatey goodness to the cake.
