Ingredients You’ll Need:

To create this heavenly chocolate cake, you’ll need:

  • All-purpose flour.
  • Sugar.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Baking powder.
  • Baking soda.
  • Salt.
  • Espresso powder.
  • Milk – you can also use buttermilk, almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
  • Oil – you can use vegetable, canola or melted coconut oil.
  • Eggs – make sure to use room-temperature eggs.
  • Vanilla extract.
  • Boiling water.


(Prep.) Preheat the oven to 350º F.

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. Once that is out of the way, pour in the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and beat all the air out, which is key in ending up with a moist and soft cake. Pour the wet mix into the dry mix, then whisk and fold gently for a smooth and velvet, almost dreamlike consistency.

Right from this step, the aroma takes off and fills the kitchen to welcome all the guests!

Distribute the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans or cupcake moulds, whatever is of your preference, and send them in on the oven for our cake to take the final form. Bake for around 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out easily. Caution because the aroma is at absolute peak levels at this point so expect the neighbours to come be a part of this magic as well!

Time for some frosting moustache for anyone taking a bite! Each spread of frosting is an added layer of goodness that wishes them well for the year ahead so be generous. We suggest using dark chocolate for some extra rich cocoa goodness that explodes in the taste buds.

Tips for Success:

– For an extra yummy twist, add a layer of chocolate ganache between every layer of the towering cake which is an extra kick of chocolatey delight.

– This would avoid a tough cake.

– Make sure your oven is fully preheated before baking to ensure even cooking.
