Chocolate Cake isn't a ordinary cake because once you mess up everything goes bad. The reality is, a good chocolate cake is hard to come by. I have tried many cake recipes but the majority of them didn't give me the satisfactory I  wanted, the results made me avoid baking chocolate cakes - but with time and a lot of adjustments I finally settled with this recipe, the results are just amazing. Photos don't lie y'all, this cake is just as good as it looks.

Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe

I used simple to find but perfect Ingredients.
For this recipe I used.

  • White granulated sugar
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • baking powder
  • vegetable oil
  • pure vanilla extract
  • milk
  • instant coffee powder
  • heavy cream
  • dark chocolate chips
Flour: Just like with my many chocolate cake recipes I went for all purpose flour.
Sugar: White granulated sugar or you can use natural graduated baking sweetener. 
Cocoa powder: A teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder.
Baking powder: 2 teaspoons of baking powder. If I had used both baking powder and baking soda then I would have added a teaspoon of baking powder and a teaspoon of baking soda.
Salt: Salt adds to the flavour. I added a teaspoon of salt.
Oil: I always used oil in my chocolate cakes because of how drying cocoa powder is.
Eggs: 2 eggs at room temperature.
Vanilla extract: What's a chocolate cake recipe without that vanilla flavour?
Milk: I always used full cream milk in most of my cake recipes but other bakers prefer using buttercream.
Water: It's a custom that you use hot water in your chocolate cake. There are no two ways about it.
Coffee powder: I added 2 teaspoons of instant coffee powder.
Heavy cream & Chocolate chips: The heavy cream and chocolate chips is for the ganache.
