Moist. Chocolate. Cake. It's amazing. Seriously. There are no words for this immaculate creation. My husband and I love to work in the kitchen. This was the recipe we made on our first date together. Needless to say it has been a favorite of ours since then.

4.5 stars from 2 ratings of The Best Chocolate Cake You Will Ever Have

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 35 min
Ready in: 1 hour 5 min
Yields: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Buttermilk, shaken
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Extra Large Eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Freshly Brewed Coffee, room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour two 8inch round cake pans.
  2. Add dry ingredients to a mixer and gently mix until combined
  3. Mix the Buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  4. Slowly add the wet ingredients (except the coffee) to the dry ingredients in the mixer. Keep mixer speed on low until everything is incorporated.
  5. Turn off the mixer and add the coffee last, stirring only a little. The mix should be liquid. (We thought we had messed it up the first time, but it's meant to be wet!)
  6. Pour the batter into the pans and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Icing the Cake

  • 6 ounces good sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature (Use the real stuff. Its cake. Do it right.)
  • 1 extra-large egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar (Sifted to break clumps)

Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or stovetop. Either in a mixer or by hand, whip the butter until fluffy, then add the egg and vanilla. Continue to stir the mixture and gradually add the sugar and then the chocolate last.

      I have to admit, the title alone is quite the dare. I've never been disappointed with my Duncan Hines...
