Choco Cake Recipe 1


½ tsp of salt
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of baking soda
1/3 cup of water
A cup of flour
½ cup of milk
A couple of eggs
1/3 cup of butter
3 cups of cocoa
Baking utensils and cake pans


Get a mixing bowl and pour the butter in it. Beat the butter until it gets soft. Pour in the sugar and mix it well. Add the eggs little by little, and keep mixing. Gather the dry ingredients and sift them thoroughly.

When baking a chocolate cake, you must combine the vanilla, water and milk. Prepare a greased 8 in pan. Pour the liquid mixture into the pan.

Put the cake in the oven and bake it for 40 minutes at 350 F (that’s 180 C). Give the cake 10 minutes to cool. Add some icing at the top. You can also sprinkle some choco chips and bits with the icing.

Choco Cake Recipe 2


A couple of cups of flour
1/3 cup of buttermilk
A couple of eggs
A tsp of baking soda
1 and ½ cups of sugar
A couple of sticks of margarine
2 ½ tsp of vanilla
A cup of water
1/3 cup of milk
8 tbsp of choco syrup
A cup of nuts
Sugar (powdered, 1 box)


Start baking a chocolate cake by getting a large mixing bowl. Put the flour in the bowl. Add in the eggs, buttermilk and the vanilla as well. Mix the ingredients thoroughly. Add 1 stick of margarine and a little bit of water.

Pour in the tablespoons of choco syrup. Transfer the mix to a pan. Let it boil for a minute. Pour this in another bowl and mix again. When it’s mixed, pour the mix into a pan. Bake it for 20 minutes at 400 F.

While the cake is baking, make the icing. Combine the stick of margarine with the choco syrup (add as many teaspoons of it as desired). Boil it. Remove the bowl from the heat. Add the powdered sugar. Spray some nuts and vanilla. When the timer goes off, you’re done baking a chocolate cake. Add the icing on the cake.

Tips and Warnings

Use a measuring cup at all times. This will ensure the contents are precise. Baking requires accurate measurements. The slightest deviation will change the cake’s flavor. Give the cake a few minutes to relax in the pan. If you remove it too quickly, the cake might disintegrate.

The pans you use will have an effect on the quality. Buy the best pans you can afford. Make sure all the utensils are clean. Wash your hands before baking. There are many types of choco cakes. Use the recipes above as templates for your own creations. You can also try cookbook cake recipes.

Anyone can learn the art of baking a chocolate cake. More than the ingredients, it’s the measurements that matter. Don’t forget these facts and you’ll be baking delicious cakes in no time.
