  • The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake is here. I call this my Matilda Cake because I swear it’s just as good as the cake that Bruce Bogtrotter ate in Matilda. Moist, chocolaty perfection. This is the chocolate cake you’ve been dreaming of!

    The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake
    BUTTERMILK SUBSTITUTE: thestayathomechef.com/buttermilk-substitute/
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Ready In: 45 minutes
    Yield: 3 9-inch rounds
    Ingredients
    butter and flour for coating and dusting the cake pan
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    3 cups granulated sugar
    1½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    1½ teaspoons baking powder
    1½ teaspoons salt
    4 large eggs
    1½ cups buttermilk
    1½ cups warm water
    ½ cup vegetable oil
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess. (see cooking lesson below)
    Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined.
    Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil, and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes.
    Divide batter among the three pans. I found that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly.
    Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cake meets the toothpick test (stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean).
    Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely.
    Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
    Notes
    The better quality cocoa powder you use the better the cake will taste.
    Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Yield: enough frosting for a 3 tiered cake
    Ingredients
    1½ cups butter, softened
    8 oz cream cheese, softened
    1½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
    3 teaspoons vanilla extract
    7-8 cups powdered sugar
    about ¼ cup milk (as needed)
    Instructions
    In a large bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer for best results
    Add in cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
    Beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Add milk as necessary to make a spreadable consistency. The frosting should be very thick and will thicken even more if refrigerated.
    Notes
    In the photos above, an extra dark cocoa powder was used in the frosting. Extra dark cocoa will result in a much darker, almost black frosting.

    Made it but but sugar was too much. Use less sugar otherwise it's sickly. You'll literally have a sugar shock afterwards, so use less sugar!

    2 cups sugar is sufficient!
    Too sweet with 3, and who needs the extra sugar! If u use 2 cups, you’ll taste the butter even more, which I love!!

    I made this with just 2 cups of sugar instead and 1 tsp instant coffee to the hot water. I found it gave a slightly less sweet and more intense chocolate flavour. It turned out great IMO. Great recipe!

      The Stay At Home Chef  15 days ago

      Not easily and it would most likely impact the overall flavor because you’d be adding so much.

    I've made the cake so many times, and it turns out as promised! The only problem I have is that the batter is really runny than what you made.
