How to Make Chocolate Cake Recipe

  • Pre-preparation: Pre-heat an oven to 200 degrees C.
  • Grease a 9-inch baking tin (round or square). Place a baking sheet and keep aside.
  • On a double boiler, melt the chocolate pieces along with milk until it dissolves.
  • With a hand blender or blender jar, add the sugar. Powder it down till fine.
  • Add the butter and beat with the sugar until creamy.
  • Add the eggs one by one and beat until creamy and frothy. Add the extract and blend again.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the liquid and blend again.
  • Sieve the dry ingredients two to three times to remove any lumps.
  • Gradually fold in the liquid to the dry ingredients till you get a lump-free batter. Do not mix rigorously.
  • Transfer the batter to the cake tin and bake at 200 degrees C for 35-40 minutes.
  • Insert a long needle or toothpick to check if the cake is done. Once done, remove and let it cool.
  • Flip it over a plate and release the cake from the bake tin.
  • Spread the frosting and garnish with chocolate strands. Serve accompanied with vanilla ice cream or creme anglais.
