The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe

The_Best_Chocolate_Cake_Recipe

The_Best_Chocolate_Cake_Recipe2This Best Chocolate Cake is moist, spongy and extremely delectable. Made with few simple ingredients and glazed with the best chocolate glaze ever. This Chocolate Cake is every chocolate lover’s dream. Hands down.

My son celebrated his 8th Birthday last week with this Best Chocolate Cake. His birthday was quiet (with this social isolation regulations) but a good one nevertheless. You really don’t need much when you get to celebrate your special day with Gooey, Spongy Chocolate Cake, right? He woke up to his standard wake-me-up-with-a-piece-of-brownie birthday greetings from us and ended his day with this Chocolate cake with Chocolate Glaze. affair

I baked him this simple yet delicious chocolate cake which has been the best chocolate cake I ever baked. The ingredients are simple and the process is even simpler. Kept the glaze just a simple chocolate one too. And one thing I can vouch for is, you will end up with the Best Chocolate Cake even if you keep your ingredients simple.

Here are a couple chocolate recipes if you are as crazy for chocolate as my family –

  1. Tried it today!! I made it without eggs, used yogurt as egg substitute and used olive oil. It urned out so good!! This recipe is a keeper!! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Looks delicious! How much of apf and cocoa powder in grams? Can the recipe be halved?

  3. If hot water is added to the egg milk batter wouldn’t the eggs get cooked?

  4. What size is the evaporated can of milk? How many ml?

    What size is the cake pain we are to use?

    Can you provide the measurement in GRAMS for the flour, cocoa, sugar, etc.?

    Thanks.

  5. Hi there, I am in absolute love with this recipe. The only addition I would like you to add is, do mention in your recipe as to when to add Sugar and Vanilla essence” . That seems to be missing. I almost missed adding sugar the 1st time I made, as it said, add flour, salt, b. Pdr and b. Soda and forgot to add the essence too, bit didn’t make much of a difference . It’s a flavourful spongy cake.
    Also, if you can write your cup measurements above all the recipe. Will be really appreciated.

    Thank you

  6. Can this be made with buttermilk? Also how much vinegar is used and when is it added?
