♥...Moist Chocolate Cake...♥

moist chocolate cake2
Having tried a few moist chocolate cakes before, the result had always disappointed me. It’ll be toooooooooo moisty (watery) in the center even after chilling for hours. Hey, I did not claim the recipe is wrong! I did mistake somewhere for sure! Well, I’ve just started baking U know…(errr, just justifying myself heresengihnampakgigi)
Thus tempted me to try another recipe, highly recommended by Namitha and Sunitha from Cookingpals. Thanks to Namitha for passing me the conversion link. That really helps.

Would say I was terribly excited and satisfied with the outcome. My kids enjoyed the cake very much and Rishie has even ordered me to do it again. Haha, so what else verdict  do U need??? This recipe is sure a keeper. senyum

Recipe originally adapted from HERE.

2.Mix the flour and baking soda by whisking together in a mixing bowl.
3..Beat the sugar and butter/oil. Add the egg and beat well.
4.Add the milk/buttermilk and cocoa and mix everything well.
5.Add the boiling water and vanilla extract now.

8.Cool on a wire rack and do the topping/frosting.

As for the topping, I made Chocolate Ganache.
I did not chill the ganache this time. Just poured them on the cake whilst still warm...Oooo la la...I loved it! cium

    Jilliane ~> Hi Jillianne, I've included the link for the choc ganache in the post.

    Here it is ;)

    CHOC GANACHE

    500 gm cooking chocolate (finely chopped)
    300 gm heavy cream
    30 gm butter

    * Heat heavy cream until it boils. Turn off flame. Add chopped cooking chocolate n stir quickly. Finally add butter and mix well. Leave it to cool at room temperature for few hours before use.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi, OMG! I must be blind to not see the link! I am so sorry if i have troubled you to retype the procedures for me...

    But still thank you for sharing!! Am looking forward to bake this tomorrow..=)

  64. Hi. I am new at baking. Just wondering if the
    flour is all purpose flour ?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hello Shob,

    Yes, I used the All purpose flour. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi! I tried the cake today. It took 2.5 hours to cook, and still in the end the skew didnt come out clean totally. Mine is a zanussi gas oven. I notice cakes take longer to cook in this oven. But the end product is yummy. It was moist. Thank you! Any idea why my oven does this?

    NeXT i shall try the ganache. Does heavy cream = thickened cream?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hello Shob,

    Frankly Im no expert about ovens dear. Im using Teka. Could it be due to gas oven? Not sure though.

    But feels good when you said abt the end product! :)

    Yes, heavy cream = thickened cream.

  72. Hello Nadia..

    Hehe no worries in asking questions as I do the same too until now. ;)

    Well, I left the ganache for abt 1.5hrs. For quicker use..you may keep in refrigerator for less time.

    I would recommend to prepare ganache prior to the cake.
