I really am looking for the most delicious chocolate cake recipe ever! Please can you offer me a helping hand????
Look no further. I found a great recipe and this is the one I've been using for every chocolate cake order I get. And they love it! It's so moist and rich in flavour. Try this out, you'll be sure to love it!
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
¾ Cup Hershey's Cocoa
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder (Optional) This will make the cake rise just a little bit more than using the Baking Soda only.
2 Eggs (I use large eggs)
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Buttermilk
Note that you can freeze buttermilk so you have it to make another buttermilk chocolate cake recipe later.
1 Cup Mazola Vegetable Oil
1 ½ Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Boiling Water
You can use 1 Cup of strong coffee instead of the boiling water. Doing so intensifies the chocolate flavor. If you're making it for children you might want to stick with the boiling water
Preheat Oven to 300° F
(This is not a typo! This is a slow bake chocolate cake recipe.)
Use Crisco Shortening to lightly grease and flour the
9 x 13 in. Baking Dish. (or two round 8"x2" pans)
(It's a one layer chocolate cake!)
Place all the ingredients on the left except the cup of boiling water into a mixing bowl.
Mix at medium or medium high speed. After about 1 minute add the 1 cup of boiling water. Then continue to mix until all ingredients are blended and smooth.
Pour into greased and floured baking dish
Bake for 1 hr. (Cupcakes 22 - 23 min. Be sure to use cupcake liners.)
Test by sticking in the middle with a knife. If it comes out clean... it's done! If not put it back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes and then test again.
Allow to cool.
