So down below there are easy chocolate cake recipe that I have discovered from different sites and have put them in one place whereby making it easier for you to choose an easy one and go with it.

No.1 of easy chocolate cake recipe

Ingredients
1+¼ cup (140 g) all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (dutched/dark)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 pinches salt
1 cup (220 g) sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla essence
½ cup (1.2 dl) milk or water
½ cup (1.2 dl) vegetable oil (flavorless)
2 eggs

Ingredients for frosting
2/3 cup (1.6 dl) heavy cream or whipping cream
9 oz (260 g) semisweet chocolate (40-50% cocoa)


Method
Preheat oven to 350 deg F (Gas mark 4 or 180 deg C)
Grease a 9 inch (23 cm) cake tin.
Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, sugar and vanilla essence in a bowl.
Add milk/water, vegetable oil and eggs.
Mix everything together until smooth, either by hand or by using an electric mixer at slow speed. If the batter is too runny you may add slightly more flour.
Transfer to bake tin and bake at 350 degrees until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, approximately 35 to 45 minutes.
After the cake has cooled, slice the cake through the middle to make two layers (easier if the cake has been in the fridge).

Frosting
Heat 2/3 cup (1.6 dl) of heavy cream or whipping cream in a saucepan.
Remove from heat, add 9 oz (260 g) of finely chopped dark semisweet chocolate, stir until smooth, and let it cool until in thickens, if needed in the fridge.
Use one 1/3 of the frosting between the two layers, 1/3 on top, and the rest around the cake. Put the cake into the fridge for one hour or more to harden the frosting.
This cake should have room temperature when served.

No.2 of easy chocolate cake recipe

Ingredients
250g butter
300g light muscovado sugar
100g plain flour
100g self-raising flour
5 eggs
300g dark chocolate

For Icing
200g dark chocolate
200ml double cream

Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Butter and line a 20cm cake tin. Using an electric whisk, beat together butter and light muscovado sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Measure out plain flour and self-raising flour. Beat in 5 eggs one at a time, adding 1 or 2 tbsp flour if the mixture starts to split. Pour 300g melted and slightly cooled dark chocolate into the mixture, beating as you do so. Fold in the rest of the flour. Spoon into the tin and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes; the cake should be risen with a crust on top. Cool and then take out of the tin. Split the cake horizontally.
To make the icing, gently melt together dark chocolate with double cream. Cool until thickened slightly. Fill the cake with icing, then spread the rest over the outside.
