Classic Chocolate Cake–Just so much better

This cake is TRIPLE CHOCOLATE meaning that its made up of a sweet and fudgy chocolate buttercream, a decadent chocolate cake, and melt scattered chocolate chips/chunks.

Not only does this cake have the perfect texture and flavor, but it’s also super easy–it comes together in one bowl, two pans and in 1 hour! I told you that this cake was the BEST!!

Chocolate Cake Needs to be:

  • Moist
  • Decadent, Melty, and chocolatey
  • Sweet with a soft crumb
  • Flavorful
  • Covered in a tasty chocolate frosting

How to make the chocolate cake:

This is an easy one-two bowl recipe (no mixer required!) Simply whisk and sift together the dry ingredients (including coffee granules) in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine your eggs, oil, sugar, and other wets and whisk until it forms a sticky and wet concoction. Add the dries into the wets with some chocolate chips and stir to form a not too thick nor too thin cake batter. Bake in two 9in pans and frost! YUM, YUM, YUM!

Chocolate Buttercream

This cake is perfect with my chocolatey butter cream recipe. You can swap this for whipped cream, buttercream, cool whip, or other frosting of choice. Normally buttercream can taste to fatty, dense, and unflavorful (depending on how you like it.), but this buttercream is fluffy, rich, chocolatey and the perfect consistency! Simply combine cocoa, powdered sugar, and butter until it is smooth, creamy, and thick.

let’s get baking!!
