Categories     Dessert

Time 45m

Number Of Ingredients 17

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 cups warm water ((or brewed coffee))
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups butter (softened)
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
7 cups powdered sugar
about 1/4 cup milk (as needed)

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour or cocoa powder and tap out the excess. Alternatively, you can lightly grease the pans and line with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined.
  • Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil, and vanilla. Beat on a low speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl so that everything gets mixed in.
  • Divide batter evenly amongst the three prepared pans, about 3 cups of batter per pan. Tap the cake pans gently on the counter to allow any bubbles to rise to the top and escape.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes in a 350 degree oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then remove the cakes from the pan and place on the wire rack to cool completely.
  • Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
  • In a large bowl, use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat together butter and cream cheese until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add in cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Beat until just combined, about 30 seconds.
  • 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 once refrigerated.
  • Use frosting to frost and assemble cake, or transfer to a piping bag for decorating. Once frosted, this cake should be refrigerated, but can remain at room temperature for up to 4 hours.

Time 1h30m

Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 17

nonstick cooking spray, for greasing
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups sour cream
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 ½ cups sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 pinch kosher salt
2 ¼ cups powdered sugar
⅔ cup cocoa powder

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Make the cake: Grease and line 2 8-inch (22 cm) round cake pans with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • In a separate large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Provided by Scott Loitsch

Categories     Bakery Goods

Time 1h20m

Yield 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 19

1 ½ cups flour
1 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ½ cups stout
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon espresso powder
1 cup butter
1 ½ cups sugar
3 eggs
½ cup mayonnaise
4 oz dark chocolate, chopped
1 ½ cups butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ cup dutch processed cocoa powder
5 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons milk
fresh fruit, to decorate

Steps:

  • Grease and line three 8-inch (20 cm) cake tins with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a large glass measuring cup, combine the stout, vanilla, and espresso powder. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides occasionally to ensure all the ingredients are being evenly creamed together.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the mayonnaise and beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Preheat oven to 325˚F (160˚C).
  • Alternate adding the prepared dry and wet ingredients to the batter. Starting with about ⅓ of the dry ingredients, beat until incorporated. Then add ⅓ of the liquid ingredients, mixing until the batter comes together. Continue until all the wet and dry ingredients have been incorporated.
  • Using a rubber scraper, fold the dark chocolate chunks into the batter.
  • Distribute the batter evenly between the 3 prepared cake tins.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Place the cakes on a cooling rack and leave to cool for about 10-15 minutes, until the outside of the pan is cool enough to touch.
  • Once the cakes have cooled, loosen the edges using a butter knife. Then place a large plate over the tin and invert to release the cake from the pan. Remove the parchment paper from the bottom of the cake and slide the cake back onto the cooling rack to cool completely. Repeat for the remaining two layers.
  • While your cakes are cooling, prepare the buttercream.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and vanilla.
  • Gradually add in the cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and milk, continuously beating until all the ingredients have been incorporated and the frosting is light and fluffy.
  • Frost and decorate to your liking.
  • Slice and serve.
  • Enjoy!

WORLD'S BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE



World's Best Chocolate Cake image

The recipe for this cake, adapted from "Sweet" by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh, first appeared in an article written about Ms. Goh when she ran her cafe, the Mortar & Pestle, in Melbourne, Australia. Rather intimidatingly for her, the headline for the article was "World's Best Chocolate Cake." It could actually be called lots of things: "world's easiest cake," possibly, requiring nothing more than one large bowl to make it all in. Or "most versatile cake," given that it can be served without icing and just a light dusting of cocoa powder, or dressed up to the nines, as it is here, with a thin layer of chocolate ganache and served with espresso cinnamon mascarpone cream. In the Ottolenghi shops in London, it is smaller and goes by the name Take-Home Chocolate Cake, designed to be shared by four people after a meal. This larger version is no less delicious, and keeps well for four to five days. As with any baking project, you should weigh your ingredients in grams for the best results.

Categories     cakes, dessert

Time 1h30m

Yield 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 19

1 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons/250 grams unsalted butter (2 sticks plus 1 1/2 tablespoons), at room temperature and cut into 3/4-inch/2-centimeter cubes, plus extra for greasing the pan
7 ounces/200 grams dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa solids), chopped into 3/4-inch/2-centimeter pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules, dissolved in 1 1/2 cups/350 milliliters boiling water
1 1/4 cups/250 grams granulated sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons/240 grams self-rising flour (see note)
1/3 cup/30 grams Dutch-processed cocoa powder, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons, for dusting
1/4 teaspoon salt
7 ounces/200 grams dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa solids), broken or chopped roughly into 3/4-inch/2-centimeter pieces
3/4 cup/180 milliliters heavy cream
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon/375 milliliters heavy cream
3/4 cup/190 grams mascarpone
Scraped seeds of 1/2 vanilla pod
2 1/2 teaspoons finely ground espresso
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 1/2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/170 degrees Celsius. Grease a 9-inch/23-centimeter round springform pan with butter and line with parchment paper, then set aside.
  • Make the cake: Place butter, chocolate and hot coffee in a large heatproof bowl and mix well until everything is melted, combined and smooth. Whisk in sugar by hand until dissolved. Add eggs and vanilla extract and whisk again until thoroughly combined and smooth. Sift flour, cocoa powder and salt together into a bowl and then whisk this into the melted chocolate mixture. The batter here is liquid, but don't think you have missed something; this is how it should be.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, or until the cake is cooked and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few dry crumbs attached. The top will form a crust and crack a little, but don't worry, this is expected. Leave the cake to cool for 20 minutes before removing from the pan, then set aside until completely cool.
  • Make the chocolate ganache, if desired: Place chocolate pieces in a food processor, process until fine and set aside. Combine cream and corn syrup in a small pan and place over medium-high heat. As soon as bubbles begin to appear (just before it comes to a boil), remove from the heat. Get the food processor running again, with the chocolate still inside, and pour in the hot cream in a steady stream. Process for 10 seconds, then add butter. Continue to process until mixture is shiny and smooth. (You can also make the ganache by hand; just make sure the chocolate is chopped fairly finely before adding the cream mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until almost melted, then add the butter. Stir again until the ganache is smooth.)
  • Use a rubber spatula to scrape the ganache into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, with the plastic actually touching the top of the ganache. Set aside until it has set to the consistency you want. If you want a thin layer to spread over the cake, it can be poured over while liquid so that you get an even, light and shiny coating. For a thicker ganache with a spreading consistency, leave it for about 2 hours at room temperature. (The ganache can be stored at room temperature, providing it's not too warm, for 3 days or kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It can also be frozen, although it will lose a bit of its shine when defrosted.)
  • Make the espresso cinnamon mascarpone cream, if desired: Place all the ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat for 1 to 2 minutes, until soft peaks form.
  • Peel the parchment from the cake and discard. Transfer to a serving platter and spread the ganache, if using, on top of the cake. Slice into wedges, divide the cake among plates and, if using, spoon the mascarpone cream alongside. With or without icing, the cake will keep well for 4 to 5 days in an airtight container.
