2018 is almost here and we’re going to celebrate it with my favorite chocolate cake. I think this cake is so perfect to start another year in the most delicious way. In fact, I’m planning to make this again on New Year’s Eve to add a sweet surprise to the very first day of the new year.
To be honest, I don’t make chocolate cake on a regular basis, but whenever I do, this is the perfect and best chocolate cake I make. And this recipe never fails to gather rave reviews from my family and friends. This is one chocolate cake recipe you’ll need to add to your recipe repertoire, you know, whenever you’re after a homemade cake for any special occasion.
No matter whether you’re a crazy baker or just a beginner, this recipe is going to work perfectly for you. As you know, measurements are very important when it comes to baking. (I used metric measurements) So make sure you check this conversation chart prior to preparing the batter.
Once you’ve the right measurements, preparing the batter is super easy. Place wet and dry ingredients separately in two bowls. With the electric beater turned on, add wet mixture into dry mixture slowly. Do not overbeat.
The one important element that gives this chocolate cake its rich flavor is hot coffee. Add this to the mixture, and stir. Divide batter among three cake tins. Bake in the oven, and allow to cool completely.
While the cake layers are cooling, make the buttercream frosting. A quick whip up of butter, cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla and cream makes this luscious buttercream frosting.
Next up, assemble the layers. First, add frosting between the cake layers, and then add a crumb coating, you know, a thin layer of frosting on the cake. Now refrigerate cake for about 30 minutes. Now you can add the rest of the frosting to the cake. Decorate the cake as you like. I added a few roses to the top of the cake for a finishing touch.
Done! Super moist, delicious and best chocolate cake just for you.
