Soft and Moist Chocolate Cake


For the cake:

  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or melted butter)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the chocolate ganache (optional):

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Make the cake batter:
    • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    • Add the eggs, milk, oil (or melted butter), and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, until well combined.
    • Stir in the boiling water. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.
  3. Bake the cake:
    • Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.
    • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then, remove them from the pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Make the chocolate ganache (optional):<!–nextpage–>
    • In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer.
    • Place the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl.
    • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
    • Stir the mixture with a whisk until smooth and glossy. Let it cool and thicken slightly before using.
  5. Assemble the cake:
    • Once the cakes are completely cool, place one cake layer on a serving plate or cake stand.
    • If using ganache, spread a layer of ganache over the top of the first cake layer.
    • Place the second cake layer on top.
    • Spread the remaining ganache over the top and sides of the cake. Alternatively, you can frost the cake with your favorite chocolate frosting.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
    • Slice and serve the cake at room temperature. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for longer freshness.


  • For an extra chocolatey flavor, you can add chocolate chips to the cake batter before baking.
  • Ensure your ingredients are at room temperature for best results in baking.
  • This cake pairs wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

This soft and moist chocolate cake is perfect for any occasion and will surely impress with its rich chocolate flavor and fluffy texture. Enjoy baking and indulging in this delightful treat!
