Moist Chocolate Cake (new recipe)

Mid-term school holiday is here! It's time for Rishie to relax and play with sister Ashika more. And I can enjoy being home rather than sunny, head-cracking outdoor! We spend most of our time with PS3...phew. Waiting for dear Hubby to return soon!

Both my kids are chocoholics just like their Papa! When Rishie requested for a chocolate cake, I just thought of this recipe which is truly moisty, chocolatey and delicious. I find the sweetness was just right as we had the cake topped with choc ganache and Cadbury chocs. Luckily I had 2 little assistants who readily helped me to arrange the choc pieces. Ashika was really excited helping me out. She just likes to imitate whatever I do in the kitchen. Thus, I had to keep my knives and sharp tools way higher!

Btw, she fell asleep while waiting for me to finish with the photoshoot, but nothing went right when I shot these pics. I completely screwed up with the settings and lighting...haha! 

Enough said, here's the recipe to the sinfully delicious Moist Chocolate Cake.


MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE

Ingredients :~
  • 100gm all purpose flour
  • 50gm dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 180gm salted butter
  • 180gm fine granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 200 ml evaporated milk ( I used Ideal )
 Method :~
  1. In a bowl, sift together all purpose flour, cocoa, baking powder and soda.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until smooth.
  3. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla essence.
  4. Add evaporated milk and flour mixture gradually, continue beating using low speed until done and fully incorporated. Scrape the sides with a cake spatula.
  5. Pour batter in a 20cm lined cake tin, bake for 45 minutes at 170C. (oven temp may vary)
  6. The cake is done when a skewer or toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  7. Cool on a wire rack. Add chocolate ganache or top with strawberries. 

CHOCOLATE GANACHE 

Ingredients :~
  • 100gm dark cocoa bars ( chopped )
  • 200ml condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp salted butter

Method :~
  1. Using double-boiler method, melt dark cocoa together with condensed milk and butter.
  2. Stir until the mixture thickens.
  3. Cool before spreading on the cake.

    1. Hi Alia...you may bake this cake in cuppies. Bake for 20 minutes or so...with same oven temp.

      Delete
    2. how many cupcakes does this recipe yields?

      Delete
    3. Hi Alia, I'm not very sure on that as I never made them into cuppies. Also depend on the cup sizes.

  45. Looks wonderful! If i refrigerate it for keeping a day or two won't it dry out?

    1. Hi Sujatha, place the cake into an airtight container prior to refrigerating. May take out the container and leave to room temperature 15 mins before serving. :)

      Delete
  46. Hi Love, may I know how cool the ganache should be before pouring or do you just spread it over the cake? room temp or still warm? Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello Anon, you may cool the ganache in room temp or even by refrigerating for 10mins. I'd sometimes just pour it over the cake while it's still warm provided the ganache is thick enough.

  52. Hi, I have a few questions to ask about this recipe as I wanted to give it a try. Can I use baking powder instead of soda powder? And, margarine (planta) instead of salted butter? I have never tried any online recipes before. Pls help -Yamuna

    1. Hi Yamuna, thanks for stopping by. I would suggest to follow the recipe as it is. We need both baking powder and soda for this recipe. And also use a good quality butter instead of margerine. Thanks and happy baking! :)

  82. Oh dear me...the cake is in the oven now, this is my first time making cake. I'm supposed to be excited while waiting for my cake outcome, now I’m not. Don’t know whats in my head, instead of using fine sugar, I used coarse sugar (my brain says fine sugar but my hand grabbed coarse sugar) AND I used normal milk instead of evaporated milk. Can you believe it? Gosh I need to go see Neurologist. Lol So disappointed at myself. :D
    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I appreciate.
