Super Moist Chocolate Cake

cake final 1

A super moist chocolate cake that can be enjoyed anytime of the day. I love making this cake as it is so simple to make and always turns out fabulous.

I usually make this with a gluten free flour blend in the same quantity as the flour in this recipe.

Ingredients
choco cake ingredients
Wet ingredients

1. Milk – 1 and 1/2 cup

2. Butter – 100 gms

3. Oil – 1/4th cup

4. Cocoa powder – 1/2 cup

 

Dry ingredients

1. Flour – 1 cup

2. Baking powder – 1 tsp

3. Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

4. Sugar – 1 cup (granulated)

5. Egg – 1, beaten

Method

1. Heat the oil, milk, butter and cocoa powder in a pan, stirring continuously until the cocoa powder mixes well. Heat just till the butter melts and all the ingredients blend together.

——————————————————

2. Allow the wet mixture to cool to room temperature.

——————————————————

3. Meanwhile, sieve the flour along with baking powder.

——————————————————

4. In a bowl, beat the egg along with vanilla essence using a stand mixer or a hand mixer.

——————————————————

5. Add the sugar and beat again for a couple of minutes.

——————————————————

6. Now you have three bowls ready – one with the egg and sugar mixture, a pan with the wet cocoa mixture and one with the sieved flour.

——————————————————

7. Mix the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and then add the egg and sugar mixture. Mix all the ingredients well.

——————————————————

8. Pre-heat oven at 180 degree Celsius for 5 minutes.

——————————————————

9. Line a 7 inch by 7 inch cake pan with parchment paper or butter.

——————————————————

10. Pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes.

——————————————————

11. To check if the cake is cooked though, insert a knife in the center. If the cake is cooked it will come out clean. If not, then the batter will be visible on the knife. Cook for a couple of minutes more then. 

——————————————————

12. Once done, cool the cake to room temperature and then remove from the cake pan.
