This cake is moist and has the perfect crumb. I cannot imagine making a chocolate cake using any other recipe. It is so easy to make and puts doctored cake mix recipes to shame. I’m eating a piece of the cake as I’m entering this, drooling all over my keyboard. It is insanely delicious. Who wants cake?
I used half Hershey’s Special Dark Unsweetened Cocoa powder to achieve the dark looking frosting.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. - Chocolate Cake
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess.
  3. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined.
  4. Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil, and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes.
  5. Divide batter among the three pans. I found that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely.
  8. Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
  9. - Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
  10. In a large bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer for best results
  11. Add in cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
  12. 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.
