Chocolate Cake

Hi guys!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I have had a very crappy start to the week so I thought I will do some blogging and share my favourite chocolate cake recipe. I recently started my masters and found some part time work so I am pretty exhausted. Hoping this week will pick up from today haha. Anyways, this recipe is a good one. It has never failed me and its so easy to whip. Main thing, its soft, moist and delicious. This recipe is very simple and has been passed on for generations in my family. It is our go to recipe. I hope you guys try it and if you do, please let us know your thoughts.

Ingredients

  • 200 g Softened Butter
  • 200 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 180 g Plain Flour
  • 30 g Cocoa Powder
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract

Method

Line a 8×8 inch square tin and pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees celsius.

Mix the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in a separate bowl.


Using a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together till it is sort of a creamy consistency with most of the sugar dissolved.



Add the vanilla and beat in one egg at a time. It will be a pretty runny, curdled looking mixture. This is normal! Don’t over mix it. A few minutes of mixing will do.

Add the dry ingredients a bit at a time, mixing in between until you are left with a thick, chocolate cake batter.


Pour this into the prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. Rest the cake before you try to take it out of the tin.




I decided to add a thin layer of ganache. You can choose to add icing, a ganache or just have it plain. It is delicious any way! Don’t take my word for it, make it and see for yourself!

Love,

Thavi
