DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO BAKE THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

Prep: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess.

Whisk dry ingredients. Sift and mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl using a whisk or electric mixer on a low speed until combined

Mix in wet ingredients. Combine together eggs, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla in flour mixture. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes. Reduce speed and carefully add boiling water to the cake batter until well combined.

Bake: Distribute cake batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center of the chocolate cake comes out clean.

Frost: Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely.

 

FAQS

Is there a Substitute for buttermilk?

Buttermilk is necessary for this recipe. It has to do with the way it interacts with other ingredients. Buttermilk is the liquid leftover after churning butter. But you can try using coconut milk, oat milk or almond milk as a substitute

Can I make this a dairy free Chocolate Cake Recipe?

Yes! Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to almond or soy milk. Let stand 5 minutes and use in place of the buttermilk.

Can I make this an Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe?

Yes! There are several options that work well when substituting for eggs in this recipe.

1/4 cup of plain yogurt per egg

1 tablespoon vinegar+ 1 teaspoon baking powder whisked together per egg

1/4 cup mashed banana per egg

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce per egg

What kind of Cocoa Powder did you use?

I used Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder in order to use a brand that is most widely available to my readers. I’m also fond of using higher quality cocoa powders like Ghiradelli’s or cocoa powders from specialty chocolatier shops, but those are pretty pricey. .
