What could be better than a chocolate cake with rich chocolate frosting? Using both cocoa powder and baker's chocolate this cake is rich and indulgent. The perfect cake to win your way to any woman's heart.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup oil (or less, if desired)
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate (powder, you can use hot chocolate mix)
  • 1 cup hot water (very)
  • 100 grams baking chocolate (crumbled)
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate (powder, for hot chocolate)
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 pinch salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease a large cake tin (I used a round one without a hole) with butter and sprinkle with flour. Set it aside.
  3. Begin by combining the sugar and the eggs and beating them well.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder, oil, and chocolate powder, and beat until it is mixed well.
  5. Finally, add the hot water and beat again.
  6. Pour the batter in the cake pan and bake about 45 to 50 minutes. Check the progress with a toothpick and, once finished, remove, take it out of the pan, and let it cool.
  7. While the cake is baking, mix the frosting. I always do it by taste, so you can combine the ingredients as you prefer.
  8. Combine all the frosting ingredients in a small saucepan and bring it to a very low heat, stirring continuously.
  9. Once you have a smooth cream, it is ready.
  10. When the cake and the frosting are only slightly warm, coverthe cake completely.

This cake recipe was amazing! I know I am going to get myself into trouble with this recipe because I will be making it all the time now. This is absolutely the way to a woman’s heart. Super chocolatey, super delicious! And the cake is super moist, too. Sooo good!
