How to Make the Most Amazing Chocolate Cake

One Of The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake is here. I call this my Matilda Cake since I swear it s just as excellent as the cake that Bruce Bogtrotter consumed in Matilda. Moist, chocolaty excellence. This is the chocolate cake you ve been dreaming of!

pan. 3 cups all-purpose flour.

3 cups granulated
sugar. 1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder. 1 tablespoon soda

This ought to take simply a couple of minutes. 4 00:02:31- Divide batter among the three pans. I discovered that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly.

5 00:02:47 – Bake for 30-35 minutes till the cake satisfies the toothpick test( stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean).

6 00:03:06 – Cool on cake rack for 15 minutes and after that end up the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely. 7 Frost with your favorite icing and take pleasure in! Notes. The much better quality cocoa powder you utilize the much better the cake will taste. 00:03:30- CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE BUTTERCREAM ICING. Components. 1 1/2 cups butter

required ). Directions.
1 00:03:38- In a big bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese up until fluffy

Beat up until integrated. 3 00:04:23 -Beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Add milk as necessary to make a spreadable consistency.

  1. Just made this cake, even my picky parents liked it. For anybody who wants to make it you should give it a try!!I already wrote it in my answers but I’ll say it here, I didn’t use this frosting recipe I just mixed a random amount butter Cocoa powder and icing sugar, have a nice day! 😊

    1. Me too just made this cake it’s rich and fluffy better than bakery shops!
      I put the other half in the freezer to have the rest later because it’s huge 😋😋

    2. Dear T.L,

      since u baked the cake u might be able to help me. What is ”2 cups of” supposed to tell me? Is this some American measurement? Or does she just think everyone has the same cups as she does? Im sorry Im a bit confused here

  2. Pro tip for those of you that didn’t already know: you can easily divide this recipe into thirds for one layer or two thirds for two layers (1 cup of flour for one layer, etc.) for the eggs if your making one layer just do one large egg but if your doing two just use three eggs
    Also instead of just warm water I mixed in a little bit of coffee powder just to make the chocolate flavor pop ( not a fan of coffee but you don’t end up tasting coffee flavor so all’s good, but better)
    I also made this a two layer and it was super delicious and moist, for the frosting I just used my own vanilla cream cheese frosting recipie 🙂

    Edit: for all of you wondering here is the adjusted recipe for only two layers that I used [pan size 9×9 in.] :

    2 cups flour
    1 1/4 cup sugar (the real recipient divided is 2 cups sugar but I find that way too sweet)
    1 cup coca powder
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    3 eggs
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 cup warm water (with about a teaspoon of coffee powder mixed in optionally)
    3/16 cup oil (fill a 1/4 cup measurement with about 3/4 filled)
    1 tsp of vanilla
    Enjoy 🙂

    1. @Zane Blane not exactly, it would be equal to 1/4 cup PLUS 1/8 cup (half of a quarter cup) hopefully you understand what I’m saying 😅😅

    2. Thank you I really didn’t want to make a 3 layer cake I appreciate you so much

  3. I made this last night for my son’s birthday.
    He passed away but I still make him a cake and this cake is the best cake I’ve ever made ever !!!
    Thank you

  4. This cake is the best chocolate cake I have ever had! It is so moist and delicious.
    I’ve had problems with other recipes when I don’t have enough batter to make layers. This recipe can make multiple thick layers. 10/10 great cake!

  5. For people looking for reviews, this cake was great! It’s incredibly moist and delicious. I made mine with chocolate ganache and it of course went well together ❤️ Thank you also for providing the grams measurement! I did not notice it the last times I’ve watched so I had to convert it myself lol 🤣

  6. This is one of the best recipes I have tried. It came out so fluffy and moist and tasty!

  7. The Stay At Home Chef
    I cannot thank you enough for this amazing recipe.
    I have been making this cake since the day you posted it and till today in April 2021 it is STILL the most awesome chocolate cake that I’ve ever baked.
    God bless you.

    1. Ok I’m going to make this tom going by your comment hope it’s a hit, coz my choclate cakes and choco chip cookies have always been a fail !!

  8. I tried this recipe and it was really good this was my first cake btw. I’m Mexican so my family is very picky but even they loved it, I put raspberry jam between the layers and made it more delicious I also used vanilla buttercream so it wouldn’t be overpowering. I suggest to rub hot coffee between the layers for extra moister also I used butter instead of oil and came out delicious, I definitely suggest this recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
