I have found this basic Chocolate Cake recipe which is bang on when it comes to right amount of softness in a cake. I made this cake for my daughter Tisha’s birthday. It was soft and tasty. Kids loved it along with all the guests.

I am not sharing recipe for frosting as I used vanilla buttercream frosting from market.

Here, it goes – a very simple and basic Chocolate Cake recipe.



  • Preheat your Oven to 350 F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients – sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another large bowl, mix whisk Egg with water, milk, oil and vanilla extract.
  • Combine both and mix them slowly, making it a smooth paste.
  • Grease your Cake Pan and pour this mixture on it.
  • Bake it for 27-30 minutes.
  • Every oven heat is different so check on your cake with a toothpick in the center of cake. Your cake is done when toothpick comes out clean.
  • When cake is done, let it rest on wire rack for a minute or two.
  • Let it cool completely before applying frosting.

You can decorate cake the way you like, or just forget about all the fuss, and eat it, the way it is. 🙂
