Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. Today I wanted to share with you a special recipe that I recently discovered – Chocolatetown Special Cake. This cake is a true showstopper and is sure to impress all of your friends and family. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Chocolatetown Special Cake
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup boiling water
This cake may look complicated, but it’s actually quite simple to make. Just follow these easy step-by-step instructions:
Step 1: Preheat
Preheat your oven to 350°F and butter and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
Step 2: Mix dry ingredients
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Step 3: Add wet ingredients
Into the same bowl, add the buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Beat everything together until smooth. Don’t worry if the batter looks a bit thick at this point.
Step 4: Add boiling water
Very carefully, pour in the boiling water and stir everything together until you have a thin batter. The batter will be quite runny, but don’t worry, that’s exactly what you want.
Step 5: Bake
Pour the batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely in their pans before removing them.
Step 6: Assemble
To assemble the cake, place one layer on a cake plate or serving dish. Spread a thick layer of your favorite chocolate frosting on top, then top with the second cake layer. Frost the entire cake with a thick layer of frosting, then decorate as desired. You can use chocolate shavings, fresh berries, or anything else that strikes your fancy.
Step 7: Serve
Slice and serve your delicious Chocolatetown Special Cake and enjoy!
