Cake , cake cake cake is all I can say about this picture πŸŽ‚

This is one of the tastiest cakes I’ve ever had. Give it a try πŸ˜…

Ingredients:
β—‡ 2 cups all-purpose flour
β—‡ 2 cups sugar
β—‡ 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
β—‡ 2 teaspoons baking powder
β—‡ 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
β—‡ 1 teaspoon salt
β—‡ 1/2 teaspoon nescafe
β—‡ 1 cup milk.
β—‡ 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
β—‡ 2 eggs
β—‡ 2 tsps vanilla extract

β—‡ 1 cup boiling water

Method:
β—‡ Preheat oven to 180Β°C Prepare two 9-inch cake pans by spraying with baking spray or buttering and lightly flouring.
β—‡ Add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking
powder, baking soda, salt and
espresso powder to a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Whisk through to combine or, using your paddle attachment, stir through flour mixture until combined well.
β—‡ Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla to flour mixture and mix together on medium speed until well combined. Reduce speed and carefully add boiling water to the cak batter. Beat on high speed for about minute to add air to the batter.
β—‡ Distribute cake batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
β—‡ Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes, remove from the pan and cool completely.
β—‡ Frost cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.

Notes:
The cake batter will be very thin after adding the boiling water. This is correct and results in the most delicious and moist chocolate cake.

As for the Chocolate ButterCream Frosting:

Ingredients:
β—‡ 1and a half cups of butter (3 sticks), room temperature.
β—‡ 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa.
β—‡ 5 cups confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar).
β—‡ Half cup of milk.
β—‡ 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Method:
β—‡ Add cocoa to a large bowl or bowl of stand a mixer. Whisk through to remove any lumps. Cream together butter and cocoa powder until well-combined.
β—‡ Add sugar and milk to cocoa mixture by adding 1 cup of sugar followed by about a tablespoon of milk. After each addition has
been combined, turn mixer onto a high speed for about a minute. Repeat until all sugar and milk have been added.
β—‡ Add vanilla extract and espresso powder and
combine well.

If the frosting appears too dry, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. If it appears to wet and does not hold its form, add more confectioner’s sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency.
