We got him all that. We have invited some of his close buddies for a jump house party next weekend. I’m thinking about baking chocolate cupcakes for them!

The easiest chocolate cake recipe.


  • All Purpose Flour: Regular all purpose flour is used.
  • Cocoa: Unsweetened cocoa is used
  • Sugar: White granulated sugar is used.
  • Hot Coffee: I like to use strong coffee but you can really use any coffee on hand. It amplifies the chocolate flavor. But if you’re not a fan just use water
  • Butter Milk: I made my own buttermilk by adding 1 tbsp white vinegar to 1 cup milk. You rest the milk mixed wit vinegar for 5 minutes. The milk will thicken. Buttermilk adds such a moistness to the chocolate cake
  • Oil: This cake is ultra-moist due to the vegetable oil.
  • Baking powder, baking soda, salt


  • Sift the dry ingredients together: Flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt
  • Mix the wet ingredients: buttermilk, oil, sugar and vanilla extract and beat until smooth (about 3 minutes)
  • Stir in hot coffee

Anyone who wants to bake a cake, needs to know their tools and equipment make their baking a success.


A hand mixer will be handy. But hey, it doesn’t have to be fancy at all. Any basic hand mixer will work. If you don’t have a hand mixer, then use a balloon whisk.


Last year, my friend gifted me 3 stackable mixing bowls. They have been a life saver. Its stainless steel and deep. My batter doesn’t make a mess anymore . 😛


I have a good selection of cake pans starting from round to rectangular to squares to Bundt. But you don’t have to collect cake pans if you aren’t as crazy as me. I would suggest you stick to the basic cake tins. In this recipe I have used a round cake tin in 9 inch.


A must have for me. Unless I’m baking brownies, I always always line my cake tins with parchment paper.


Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don’t have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.

Allow the cake to cool 15 minutes in pans, then run a butter knife around the edges of each cake. Set the racks down and gently thump on the bottom of the pans until the cakes release. Cool completely before handling or frosting.

This chocolate cake can be made into a two layer cakes. Divide the batter equally between two cake tins and bake.

This easy chocolate cake can be used for a lot of fillings. If you have berry preserves, then use that as a filling. Raspberry and strawberry go so well with chocolate. Even pomegranate.

    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
