How to Make the perfect Chocolate Cake

.We all have a sweet tooth. Just imagine anyone who can resist eating a yummy treat in the form of a tasty and appetizing chocolate treat. We all deserve this reward from time to time. Once you bite it melts in your mouth making the – happiness hormone high in your organism and you automatically become happy again. Forget about the silly diet you are on. Once in a blue moon reward yourself. I am going to share with you this great recipe for an unforgettable bite of the yummiest cake. This delicious thing is worth eating.

Make sure you have these INGREDIENTS at hand;

  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup of cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 eggs with white and yolk
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

Steps to take :

Step 1. We need to heat the oven to 350°F degrees. Take the baking pan and add some flour to the pan. We do this to avoid the dough to stick onto the pan.

Step 2. Combine all the powders together in a separate pot – sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir them all well and only after it you can feel free to add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Once all the ingredients are in the pot, you need to turn the mixer on and mix all the ingredients together for 2 minutes’ maximum. Will be better if you stir them in boiling water.

Step 3. Bake the ready dough for some 30 to 35 minutes. In order to check whether the dough is ready you can check by the well-known and useful trick with the help of a little wooden pick or matches that you can insert in the center of the dough and take out immediately. Once it comes out clean, you can be sure the dough is ready. Let the dough cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pans. Once the dough is totally cool you can frost it with chocolate frosting – the most important moment. Then you can cut it into 12 equal pieces and have 12 separate servings for your guests.

There are quite different ways to make a chocolate cake as you can see at https://www.corriecooks.com

We can try out the one-pan cake. Add some flour to the pan with a different shape and heat the oven to 350° F degrees. We need to bake the cake for 40 minutes. And again after cooling we need to frost it.

Alternatively, we can make a three-layer cake. In this case again we need to grease and put some flour onto three 8-inch round baking pans. The oven needs to be heated to 350°F degrees. Baking time for the cake is 30 minutes. Cooling time is 10 minutes and again we need to cool the cake and then frost.

Cupcakes are perfect choice for kids especially. Take cups and put paper bake into the cups. After that heat the oven to 350°F degrees. Place the dough in the cups and bake for 25 minutes. Again. After cooling completely, we can start frosting. We will have 30 cupcakes ready.
