Super Moist Chocolate Cake

I have made several chocolate cakes. Each time I make one I tend to slightly change the recipe from the previous one. I want my cakes to be very moist. I got a very nice result with this one. Even after 5 days the cake was still very moist. This is one worth trying. This recipe is made completely from scratch with simple ingredients and the preparation is quick and easy.


2cups flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup oil
1 cup boiling water
1cup full fat (whole) milk
2 large eggs (whisked)
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C) 

Grease and flour one 9 x 13 pan or two 9 inch round pans.
Mix ingredients together in a large bowl. I did mine in the following order:
- eggs
- oil
- milk
- boiling water
- mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl (sifted flour and cocoa)
- add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients
- add vanilla
Mix well and then pour in pan(s). 

* The batter should be thin.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Check with toothpick to ensure good timing. 

Frost your cake as you desire. I tasted mine prior to frosting. After a few pieces as is, I decided not to frost it. It tasted nice without. Especially with a hot cup of coffee!!!

Enjoy :)

  5. You know I love chocolate cake. Just did one on my blog too. (semi-homemade) I see one different item....boiling water. I'm always changing up my recipe also. I'm keeping the boiling water in mind the next time I bake a homemade chocolate cake. It's probably a key ingredient for keeping it moist.

    1. Hi Sharon!
      When I went looking for ways to get a moist cake I found one recipe that added in boiling coffee. I couldn't add the coffee (some people do not like coffee flavor) so decided to try the water only.
      This is the best one I have ever made. Thus far :)
