Want a quick and easy Chocolate Cake with great flavor? This is it. All the ingredients can actually be mixed together right in the pan and this single layer cake has a rich chocolate flavor with a moist and tender crumb. A nice snacking cake.

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
Chocolate Cake:
1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all purpose flour
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
1/4 cup (25 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch-processed), sifted
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup (75 grams) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup (240 ml) warm water
1 tbsp lemon juice (or vinegar)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Chocolate Frosting:
6 ounces (170 grams) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup (180 ml) heavy cream (35% butterfat)
1 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

Directions:
Chocolate Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven.

In an ungreased 8 inch (20 cm) square cake pan, stir together the flour, sugar, sifted cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add the melted butter, water, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. With a fork, mix all the ingredients together until well blended.

Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly pressed and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

Frosting: Place the chopped chocolate, cream, and butter in a heatproof bowl. Place over a saucepan of simmering water and melt until smooth. Remove from heat and let stand at room temperature until it is of pouring consistency. Then pour the frosting over the cooled cake. Let stand until frosting has thickened.

Serves 8 - 10 people.
