Ingredients You’ll Need:

Gather your ingredients before starting to ensure a smooth baking process. You’ll need sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, milk (or a plant-based alternative), oil, vanilla extract, and boiling water. Opt for high-quality cocoa powder to enhance the chocolatey goodness of the cake.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Begin by mixing together the dry ingredients in a large bowl: sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract until well combined. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until a smooth batter forms. Then, carefully pour in the boiling water, stirring until fully incorporated.

Baking and Serving:

Preheat your oven and prepare a baking pan by greasing and flouring it. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once baked, allow the cake to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, slice the cake into generous portions and serve. This cake is delicious on its own but can be elevated with a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar. Enjoy each decadent bite of this homemade chocolate cake, and be prepared for requests for seconds!

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply treating yourself to a delightful dessert, this homemade chocolate cake is a winner. With its easy preparation and incredible flavor, it’s sure to become a favorite in your recipe collection.
