Best Chocolate Cake recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease 2 round pans to pour cake mixture into
Mix the following ingredients together in a mixer
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup of un-salted butter
In another bowl mix these dry ingredients together
- 2 cups flour (all purpose is my go to, but cake flour works too)
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
Once the dry ingredients are mixed together, gradually add the dry mixture in with the wet mixture. Let it mix for 5 minutes once all together. When all of the ingredients are mixed together pour evenly into each round pan and bake for 30 minutes.
When the baking time is finished test the middle of the cake to make sure it is baked. If it isn’t fully baked put in the oven for 5 minutes and check again afterwards. Repeat in 5 minutes increments should the cake require longer baking time.
Once finished let cool and trim the tops to make each cake level (remove the hump). Ice the top of one cake. Place the other cake on top and ice the whole cake (with the chocolate icing recipe below).
