Steps To Cook Chocolate Cake

Adding All The Dry Ingredients:

Add all the dry ingredients for Simple cake recipe like flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt to a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. mix the dry ingredients well to combine every thing nicely. You may have seen a few cake recipes that utilize hot water or even hot coffee. When the hot liquid is combined with the cocoa powder, it helps to dissolve and ‘bloom’ the cocoa powder to bring out as much flavor with as few cocoa lumps as possible.

Whisking An Art:

Whisk through to combine or, using your paddle attachment, stir through flour mixture until combined well. Then further you need to all the liquid ingredients. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, butter and vanilla to flour mixture and mix together on medium speed until well combined. Each ingredient in this cake recipe was carefully chosen to make for a Easy cake or you simply say simple home made chocolate cake.
I prefer using both butter and oil for a cake that has a great flavor but is still nice and moist otherwise you’ll lose some of that great butter flavor. The extra egg yolk in this recipe also makes this chocolate cake moist. Another way to keep this chocolate cake extra moist and soft is to take care that you do not over-bake it. Make sure that your oven temperature isn’t running hotter than it is required. over-baking your cake will make your chocolate cake dry and crumbly.

Chocolate Cake With Batter

You don’t even need a mixer for the chocolate cake Batter. Believe me this chocolate cake mixture is so creamy and buttery… 😀  just melt in mouth kinda recipe. i just love this batter in this stage too and cannot stop myself to taste it with a dipped finger. The more whole eggs a cake recipe has, the richer it’ll be. Since the egg yolk contains most of the fat in an egg, it also lends richness to cakes. Adding an egg yolk to this recipe also helped increase the fudge factor. Be sure your eggs are at room temperature so they blend into the batter smoothly.
To get a moist and nice fluffy chocolate cake, Reduce the whisking speed and carefully add boiling water to the cake batter until it gets well combined. Divide the ready cake batter evenly into the two prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the chocolate cake comes out clean.

Chocolate Cake Baking It Correct:

Remove the chocolate cake from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes, Let it cool completely before frosting. Decorate the ready cake with Buttercream Frosting. The frosting uses melted chocolate for the most intense and pure chocolate flavor possible. I like to use semisweet, but feel free to use milk or bittersweet chocolate. Just make sure you’re using the highest quality chocolate you can.

Easy Moist Cake Recipe

I have many recipes on my site for chocolate cake and most of them use coffee. Coffee will enhance the flavor of the chocolate, not overpower it. If your recipe is good (and this one is) you will not taste the coffee at all, you will only taste the richest chocolate cake you have ever had.

 

This cake recipe utilizes brewed hot coffee in the first steps and then cooled coffee in the second part. Some recipes will call for instant coffee crystals or espresso coffee. Perfect for birthdays, this is a great recipe for an easy, foolproof easy Moist chocolate cake. It’s moist and fudgy and will keep well for 4–5 days.

 

Chocolate Frosting

Let’s talk about frosting for our super yummy cake. This is a basic Chocolate Frosting done right. I used dutch process cocoa so that my frosting would be a bit darker, but you can certainly use regular unsweetened cocoa powder. (it will be lighter in color).

 

 

The home made chocolate frosting will keep well in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for up to three months.  Remove the frosting from the fridge about an hour before you’re ready to frost your cake to allow it to come to room temperature. It compliments so many delicious cakes and cupcakes.
