How to Make a Chocolate Cake

Making a chocolate cake from scratch is a great way to show off your baking skills and impress your friends and family. With a few simple ingredients and a little bit of know-how, you can make a delicious and moist chocolate cake that’s sure to be a hit.

Ingredients You’ll Need

To make this chocolate cake, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (414g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (65g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
  • 1 cup (240ml) warm coffee or water
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions for Making the Cake

Here’s how to make this delicious chocolate cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease two 9-inch (23cm) round cake pans.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, coffee or water, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once the cakes are completely cool, you can frost and decorate them as desired.

Tips for Perfect Results

Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect chocolate cake:

  • Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before you start baking. This will help them mix together more easily and result in a smoother batter.
  • Use good-quality cocoa powder for the best flavor. Dutch-processed cocoa powder is especially recommended for this recipe, as it has a rich and smooth flavor that works well in chocolate cakes.
  • Don’t overmix the batter! Mixing the batter too much can result in a dense and dry cake. Just mix until the ingredients are just combined, then stop.
  • If you’re using coffee instead of water, make sure it’s not too hot. Hot liquids can cook the eggs in the batter and result in a tough cake.
  • Don’t open the oven door too frequently while the cakes are baking, as this can cause them to sink or rise unevenly.
  • To avoid a tough or dry cake, be careful not to overbake it. Check the cakes after 30 minutes and then every 5 minutes after that, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  • Let the cakes cool completely before frosting and decorating them. If you try to frost the cakes while they’re still warm, the frosting will melt and the cake will become soggy.


Making a chocolate cake from scratch is a fun and delicious baking project that’s perfect for special occasions or just for a sweet treat. With this recipe and a few tips, you’ll be able to make a moist and flavorful chocolate cake that everyone will love. Happy baking!
