Moist Chocolate cake

Moist chocolate cake






Chocolate cake made from scratch! Moist chocolate cake that will satisfy your cravings.

Our family loves to bake our cakes from scratch. So tonight we did a little experiment! Crossed our fingers and voila! It worked perfectly.. Try it and we are sure you'll love it as much as we do.

Bring in the little helpers and here we go!

 Flour mix:

1 1/2 cup of all purpose floor (sifted)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 cup of brown sugar

Wet Ingredients:

4 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup of semi chocolate chips
3 table spoons of nuttela
3 table spoons of butter

1 3 inch  deep greased baking pan ( a trick from Martha Steward, grease the pan and line it with parchment paper, also grease the parchment paper as well)

 

Butter cream frosting:
1 stick of room temperature unsalted butter
2 teaspoon of milk
1 lb. powder sugar
 
Mix all the content in a large bowl. If the frosting is too stiff add a little more milk. If its too soft, put it in the fridge for a few minutes.
 
Chocolate frosting:
 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
 3 teaspoon of hot milk or water
 
Whisk in the chocolate chips into the hot milk until smooth. Pour on to cake, cover it evenly and refrigerate for about 30 min to solidify.
 
Optional:

1 package of vanilla instant pudding
chocolate syrup
Whipped cream
cherry




Preheat oven at 350 degree.

Combine all the dry ingredients together and mixed thoroughly. On a double boiler or simply a pot of boiled water with a glass bowl, add butter, chocolate chip, stir frequently until everything melts together. Take the melted chocolate off the boiler and stir in the nutella. 

Whisk in the vegetable oils, eggs and slowly stir it in the chocolate mixture(make sure its cooled down or else you'll have scrambled chocolate :D).

Pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients and blend or whisk until smooth. Bake for 45 min or until the center comes out clean with a tooth pick. Add the vanilla pudding, whipped cream with a cherry, chocolate syrup and you are set or vanilla ice cream. Serve while its nice and warm or if its frosted, refrigerate cake for about 30 min or until solidify.

The kids love and enjoy what they help accomplished. Can you see their reaction? priceless. :D
