This is…….. THE Best Ever Chocolate Cake

best ever choc cake 9

This recipe is amazing – it makes the loveliest, moistest chocolate cake I have ever tried – it gets better by the day and freezes well too. Be warned….the quantities of sugar and cocoa will blow your mind – they are not a typo! But if you want a gorgeous, melt in your mouth cake this is it!

This recipe makes either a massive cake, 2 big ones, or 2 dozen muffins and a cake. I always use my roasting dish to make this and then freeze portions for later. It is a very moist cake so leave it until completely cool before you ice it – my Awesome Easy Rich Chocolate cake is easier & denser to ice for decorative birthday cakes but THIS one is too good not to share….


3.5 cups flour
3.5 cups sugar
1.5 cups cocoa powder
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oil
2 cups milk

2 cups of boiling water (added at end)

Pour into lined baking pan – I have used our roasting dish here and bake at 160C for 50 minutes to 1 hour depending on oven. Reduce cooking time accordingly depending on size of pans or if making muffins.

Cake is cooked when skewer comes out clean.

This cake gets moister by the day so stays nice and fresh very similar to mud cake. I ice it with my basic chocolate icing, or for a very decadent alternative try my Chocolate Ganache you will find under Baking & Recipes.
