Simple Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

I know, it's been a long time since I updated my blog. The posting is getting postponed for one or other reason. As I started working now I became little busy to concentrate on my blog. Or may be that's just an excuse. Sometimes we need break from any work, don't we? But it seems I've taken a long break, so decided to make a fresh start with fresh recipes.

I wish to start my fresh journey with this amazing yet simple cake recipe. My daughter made this cake all by herself with no help from me. She made it for her little sister's 9th Birthday party that happened last Saturday. She decorated the cake so well that everyone at the party loved the decoration and of course the taste. Isn't it pretty?

Chocolate Cake

Here is the recipe:

Recipe Source: About.com
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (We used Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 2 cups granulated Sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened Cocoa
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs 
  • 1 cup Milk 
  • ½ cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 ½ tsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup Boiling Water
Chocolate Cake

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla to above mixture and beat well with electric mixer or an egg beater.
  3. Then stir in boiling water and mix well. The batter should be thin.
  4. Take two cake pans (8-inch), grease them well with a non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Pour the batter until ¾th of the pan is filled.
  6. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Then place both the cake pans on the middle rack side by side
  7. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. When done, remove the pans from the oven and place them on the cooling rack to allow them cool for 10 minutes in pan.
  9. Then remove from pan and cool completely.
  10. Frost and decorate as desired.

Hi Uma, it's good to have you back, and a cake seems such a perfect way to celebrate. :) It certainly is difficult balancing a job with blogging--I often find myself falling off the wagon for that very same reason. There are times I find a groove and all goes well for a while, until a new emergency pops up at work. You will find your groove eventually.
