Moist Chocolate Cake, Anyone???

Moist Chocolate Cake1

This is the best chocolate cake I've ever tried. I baked the Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake not too long ago and was wondering how is this oven baked Moist Chocolate Cake turn out, will it be nice?? Anyway, I stumbled upon this wonderful recipe at My Kitchen (original recipe is from kak izan on MyR) This recipe is definitely a keeper. Try it and you will know why I'm saying so...hehe!!

I LOVE everything that is related with chocolate. So, I decided to give this recipe a TRY!! Ya, this cake turn out almost perfect, moist and rich in chocolatey taste. It's worth a try if you are one of the chocolate craze out there.

I use Hershey's natural unsweetened cocoa powder to bake this cake. This is one of my favourite brand for cocoa powder. However, I still found the cake are a bit on the sweet side. I will reduce the amount of sugar use on my next bake. My kids enjoying eating it so much, they just love it!

1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp instant coffee (optional)

pinch of salt

125g butter, softened
1 cup castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla essense
2 large eggs

1 cup cake flour

  • Combined all ingredients for chocolate paste except MILK in a mixing bowl. Hand whisk mixture till sugar are fully dissolved.
  • Add in milk, stir to mix well. Set aside.
  • Sift cake flour and baking powder together for later use.
  • In another bowl, cream butter and sugar till it is light and fluffy. Add vanilla essense and continue with eggs one at a time. Beat till well combined.
  • Gently fold in flour mixture, alternate with the chocolate paste. *Start with flour and end with flour.

Tracie: I took the pictures under natural light. However, I wish to get a table lamp for better lighting when I snapped the pictures at night.

Hi Joy Bake,

I didn't really measure how much is 1 cup of cake flour. I use the cup we normally use for measuring baking ingredients to measure the ingredients for this recipe .. I will measure it next time if I bake this again and update it here ok?
