Transcript (partial): Hello and welcome back to In the Kitchen with Matt, I am your host Matt Taylor, today I am going to show you how to make a chocolate cake, mmm yummy. I had a request to make a chocolate cake, so here we go, this chocolate cake is super moist, super delicious, really amazing recipe, it I can do it, you can do it, let’s get baking. First let’s go ahead and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. or 176 Celsius. And now what we are going to do is we are going to mix together all of our dry ingredients, and I am going to list all of the ingredients down below in the description, 2 cups of all purpose flour, 2 cups of white granulated sugar, yep that is a lot of sugar, ¾ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp. of salt, 1 and ½ tsp. of baking soda, 2 tsp. of baking powder, and with a whisk let’s go ahead and whisk this up really well, you could also sift this all together if you like. All right that is great, add our milk one cup of milk, ½ cup of oil, 2 large eggs, 2 tsp. of vanilla extract, now I am going to switch to a hand mixer, you could still use your whisk, it gets a bit clumpy or you could use a wooden spoon to do this. Okay at this point I have one cup of water here, and I got it really really hot almost boiling, I just put it in the microwave for about a minute and a half, it’s really hot, now with the mixer on low speed, we are going to slowly incorporate our really hot water, pour the rest of it in there. Ok so the hot water what it is going to do is it is going to thin out the batter, and it is going to help to be moist and get nice an fluffy for us. Don’t be alarmed if the batter seems to liquidy that’s okay, and kind of finish it off with your spatula. This is going to be for 2 9-inch cake pans, and so it is going to be a double layered cake, and what I did is I prepped my pan this is a brand new wilton nonstick pan, um but I still like to prep it, I just put some butter, softened butter all around in the inside, and then put about a tablespoon of flour in there, and you just kind of tap it around, like this, and the flour, goes everywhere and then you get rid of the rest of it, it’s really simple to do, and I recommend prepping your pans, because we don’t want our cake to stick, when we want to pull it out of the pans. We want the batter to be evenly spread in between these two. What I am going to do is I am just going to take a cup, and we will do one cup of cake batter in this one, and then one cup over in this one, and so on, until we are evenly incorporated, so I will come back when that is done. All right so these are ready to go in our oven, and we are going to bake them for 30 to 35 minutes until when you poke them, with a toothpick the toothpick comes our clean. All right when they come out of the oven they will look like this.

Check out my channel :https://www.youtube.com/c/SueRanSL #chocolatecake #sueran #cakerecipes This recipe shows how to make a rich & a moist chocolate cake frosted with butter cream frosting & finishing up with a chocolate ganache from scratch... I am making a four layer chocolate cake here frosting each layer with buttercream frosting & topping up with dark chocolate ganache...My layers aren't even as I expected it to be but the taste & the texture came out to be perfect ;) I hope you will try this recipe out & share you're thoughts with me :) These are the ingredients I used.. Cake: 1 3/4 Cups all purpose flour 3/4 Cocoa Powder (Regular) 2 Cups of white sugar 1 1/2 tsps of Baking powder 1 1/2 tsps of Baking soda 1 tsp of salt 1 Cup pf Whole Milk 1/2 Cup of Vegetable oil 2 tsps of Vanilla essense 1 Cup of regular coffee 2 Large Eggs Buttercream Frosting: 1 Cup of room temperature soften butter 1 1/2 Cups of Cocoa Powder (Regular) -I am using Nestle Cocoa Powder in this video,if you are using a different brand, use 1 cups of cocoa powder and increase according to your taste..(Check ** below for reasoning) 2 Cups of powdered sugar (Confectioners sugar) 5-6 tsps of Milk (as needed to get the right texture) 1 tsp of Vanilla essense Chocolate Ganache: 1 Cup of Dark Chocolate Chips 1 Cup of heavy milk (whipped milk) 1 tsp of Light corn syrup (Optional) 1 tsp of Vanilla essence Pans: Two 9 inch pans Bake: 350 degree for 30-35 minute **I used a different brand(Hershey Cocoa) other than Nestle to make this cake and realized Hershey is way too dark compared to Nestle Cocoa, so the frosting can be bitter. Since I used the above mentioned recipe with adding 1 1/2 cup cocoa, I had to add more confectioners sugar to bring the bitterness down, So thought of mentioning that here. Products I am using: ----------Light Corn Syrup : https://amzn.to/2KDF6U9 ----------Dark Chocolate Chips: https://amzn.to/2P5nlxD ----------Cocoa Powder: https://amzn.to/2TOSARn Equipment I am using: ----------Stand Mixture: https://amzn.to/2P6viTi ----------9 inch Cake pans: https://amzn.to/2SepQzO Try it out & let me know in the comments below..

PERFECT CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE
8 oz unsweetened chocolate
4 C sugar (3 3/4 C for high altitude)
3 C flour (3 1/4 C for high altitude)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda (1 1/4 tsp for high altitude)
1 tsp salt
2 C HOT water with 10 tsp coco powder dissolved in it (2 1/4 C water for high altitude)
1 C sour cream OR greek yogurt
1 C vegetable oil
4 Lrg eggs lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 345
Prepare three 8 or 9 inch round cake pans (if doing 8 inch pans I suggest 3 inches tall pans, or four of the 2 inch tall 8 inch pans) I use parchment paper circles on the bottom and a non stick spray on the sides
Melt the baking chocolate in double broiler (or in a bowl over a simmering pot of water) then let it cool.
In a large bowl, or bowl of a mixer add the sugar, flour, soda and salt and whisk together.
In a separate bowl (or a large glass measuring cup) mix the hot water and cocoa
Then add the sour cream and oil and whisk.
Add the wet mixture in a stream to the dry ingredients and mix until blended.
Add the lightly beaten eggs and beat.
Add the cooled melted chocolate and mix until uniform in color.
Bake at 345 40-45 mins (raise the heat by 25 degrees and lower the time by 5 mins for high altitude)

CHOCOLATE GANACHE BUTTERCREAM
20 oz chocolate chopped
1 1/2 C cream
2 tbsp corn syrup (stabilizing)
2 C butter – slightly softened
1-2 C powdered sugar
Place the chocolate into a large bowl
in a saucepan heat the cream and corn syrup - until just about to simmer
Pour it over the chocolate and let it sit for 5 mins - then stir
Let the ganache cool to room temp
Beat butter and add 1 C powdered sugar
add more if needed to achieve a thick buttercream
pour the ganache into the buttercream and beat.
Chill for 5-19 mins n the fridge, beat again, chill, beat, chill, beat - until your happy with the thickness
