Instructions: How to make the ultimate cake recipe


1. In a large bowl measure out the dry ingredients, measure 3 cups of all-purpose flour, and add one cup of cocoa powder. Next up we’ll need our rising agents and this recipe uses both 2 teaspoons of baking powder and baking soda. and use a whisk to combine the ingredients well.  Set the bowl to the side while we work on the wet ingredients.

2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl measure out the sugar. You’ll need 2 and a half cups or 300g of granulated white sugar, now add  3 eggs and make sure your eggs should be at room temperature. Before start baking just adds 1-1/2 cups of whole milk and 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Give it a quick mix and sit it for about 5 mins.

3. Pour it into the bowl with the other wet ingredients followed by the oil. You’ll need 3/4 of a cup or 190ml of a flavorless oil like canola, sunflower, or vegetable.  Follow up with a tablespoon of vanilla essence or extract and use a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together. The last ingredient we’ll need is one and a half cups of strong hot coffee. 

4. Pour the rest of the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and hot coffee and start to mix it together with a whisk. You should end up with a quite thin and liquidy batter. Divide the chocolate cake batter between two or three 8” or 20cm lines and greased cake pans depending on if you want to make two or three layers to the finished cake.  Place the cake pans into a  180 or 350 preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes. 

Process of frosting

There are a few different options when it comes to frosting or icing the cake. you can also make a chocolate buttercream or even a whipped chocolate ganache would be decadent. To make the chocolate cream cheese frosting within the bowl of your stand mixer or a massive bowl if you are using a hand mixer add within the room temperature butter.

Beat on medium pace for approximately 2-3 mins or until the butter is mild and fluffy and almost doubled in quantity. Follow with the cream cheese and mix again for a further minute until incorporated. Add three cups or 375g of icing sugar or powdered sugar to the bowl, and half a cup or 50g of cocoa powder. And now, pour 2 tbsp of milk.

And add 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence or extract.  Beat the chocolate cream cheese frosting for every other minute or till it’s miles light and fluffy. You can use a serrated knife to level it but these do bake quite flippantly so it’s not a necessity.

Place about 3/4 of a cup of the chocolate cream cheese frosting onto the cake and use an offset spatula to spread it evenly. Assemble your chocolate Top with another cake layer and repeat the process.  Spread the top and sides with the frosting. Place the cake in the fridge for at least 30  minutes just to let it set before serving. Cut a slice and enjoy.
