Cakes or cake with chocolate icing will please adults and children, especially if you strictly adhere to the recipe. A glaze made of white or dark chocolate will be a great option for decorating a dessert with bird’s milk, biscuit cakes and other homemade cakes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9″ cake pan with non-stick baking spray, set aside.

In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, both sugars, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, sour cream, milk, and vanilla.

  • It literally best cake I have ever seen ohh my god I don’t have any ingredients I wish I could make this. But only I can see not make

  • Thanks a lot for this amazing recipe.
    I just like to know the difference between this cake and chocolate chiffon cake? Which one do you recommend for a birthday cake?

  • I made this cake at least 5 times in the last year. So far this is the best cake that I have tasted. You are also explaining so well. I am so in love with this recipe.

  • The 3-tier cake will be too big for me to handle as this is going to be my first baking experience. Could someone suggest how much flour, eggs, buttermilk and cocoa powder should be used in 2-tier cake? Will really appreciate your response.

  • @bakers secret I didn’t know you had this channel as well..I’m subscribed to your bake like a pro channel,subbing to this one as well 😉

  • I made this cake and it took me about 4 hours in total but it was definitely worth it, it’s literally the best cake I have ever tasted

  • Could you please let me know which flour is used in this cake? I have never baked so I am not sure which flour to pick? Thank you so much

  • Omg this title isn’t just clickbait���� I made this cake a few days ago and it’s really the most amazing, moist, soft chocolate cake I’ve made! Love the recipe thanks for sharing!

  • 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
    I also made this a two layer and it was super delicious and moist, for the frosting I just used vanilla cream cheese frosting for that pop of color:)

  • This is amazing! I didn’t make the frosting, but I made the cake with gluten-free flour and it still turned out perfect! I’ll definitely use this recipe again next time I make chocolate cake.

  • Ok, just tried this but had cut it down to 2 cups of flour and reduced the rest accordingly. Unfortunately it was so liquidy, had to increase the flour by almost 1 1/2 cups. I am currently waiting to see how it turns out after baking.

    Ok, so I should not have added that much more flour. I will try this again but will only add about 3/4 cup of flour extra. I am determined to get my Bruce Bogtrotter cake.

  • Her: tap out the excess into a trash can or the sink
    Me: how about into my mouth? There is no food to waste in this kingdom!

    I will just add it into the batter for extra chocolate, everyone happy ^^

  • No! My cake didnt turn out soft decadent. It was hard! I followed da recipe word to word except i half it as it was too big cake! It didnt turn out good! I wud suggest tasty s chocolate cake recipe was way much better than dis one!

  • Have made this before and can confirm super yummy but quite big. I reduce the sugar and add some instant coffee to the hot water which brings out the chocolate flavour, and you doesn’t taste like coffee.

  • I’ve tried the cake for my sister’s birthday used yogurt instead of buttermilk and 1 cup of sugar. Turned out nice but for this week i will do it again for my daughter’s birthday and increase the amount of sugar to 1.5 cups as the first time it was kinda tasteless…

  • Hi! Can i use fresh milk instead of whole milk coz i can’t find the latter in the grocery? Would it still produce nice buttermilk?

  • I’ve made this chocolate cake on my channel based on your recipe, but steamed version. The taste was so amazing..❤️ I made it for my child birthday, and our family member were so surprised with the taste. It was so… Good… Thankyou for your amazing recipe. ❤️

  • Mam I love watching your videos. I don’t known why but its make me so and happy and settle. I love cooking and baking and you makes me wow every time���� Stay blessed

  • Hey there!
    I tried out the cake and it came out a bit dry
    I added all the ingredients in the exact same measurement from the video
    Is there anything I can do to make it more moist

  • I tried this recipe. It’s so good but my problem is my cake gets crumbly. I followed the exact measurement. What could possibly be the reason why it became crumbly? I would appreciate if you could help me. Thank you!

  • What will be the ratio of cake flour?? I mean for 1 cup cake flour the recipe was ( 1cup cake + remove 2 tbs and add 2 tbs corn starch )??

  • Can I use salted caramel chips instead of chocolate chips? I’m looking for icing recipes that’s not too hard. I’m making a salted caramel cake, we’ll at least attempting to. lol.

  • wow thank u for this beautiful video,can i use all purposed cream instead of whipping cream????will wait for ur reply,thank u so much

  • I’ve been making this cake consistently for the past five years and to see people are just now finding the recipe because of quarantine is sorta annoying

  • YES PEOPLE I can vouch for this!best chocolate cake EVER. You will not regret making this!i once made this 2 days in advance and it was still ridiculously moist

  • I tried this recipe and was pretty dissapointed with the outcome. Overall the cake did not have a chocolate or fudge flavour and was pretty bland with more of a brownie consistency. The buttercream did not taste nice and I strongly recommend seiving the icing sugar as it clumps the cream which blocks the piping bag. I think the buttercream recipe had too much butter and not enough chocolate as it really just tasted of butter. Maybe using dark chocolate for the buttercream could have helped but 3 sticks of butter was too much and I had so much buttercream left over I threw it all away. Everyone I shared the cake with avoided the buttercream because it tasted horrible. The buttercream also used too much icing sugar which I felt was a little unnecessary.

    The flour butter idea to grease the pan did not work. I recommend just using baking paper as I tried this method and I couldn’t get my cake out any of my tins.

    It was too moist to the point the cake would stick to whatever plate I would use to place it on even after it cooled and it was such a struggle to move it around to serve or stack without breaking.

  • Can we substitute 1/2 cup sour cream with a mixture of evap milk and vinegar? What is the exact measurement for the substitute? Thank you in advance preppy kitchen
