When you bake a Creamy chocolate cake, always aim for the best compliments. It is always good to hear the cake was just as good as their last bite as they thought it was their first. Since people have become very health conscious these days, they have started preferring gluten free, dairy free and egg free cakes.
Chocolate cake is almost everyone’s favourite and apparently the first preference when it comes to choosing cakes. The process of making a delicious chocolate cake is very simple and can be done really quickly. There have been many claims where people have regarded their chocolate cake as the best of all. The chocolate cake should be moist and can be served even after a day of baking.
In order to get the best result, always ensure to prepare the cake batter in a bowl without using a duty mixer. This will help in making your things much easy and also let you enjoy the entire process. Espresso powder can be a great ingredient. If you have never used espresso powder in the cake ever before, then you should definitely go for it. It will help in giving much importance to the flavours of the cake.
The best part about this cake is the unsweetened chocolate in the batter which helps in lending the cake a rich and deep chocolate flavour. Now days people who have understood that cream and frosting should always go in balance and they don’t try to mess up the cake with excess of all the ingredients. Every ingredient should be used in required amounts and it must be balanced.
When you prepare the chocolate frosting, ensure to keep it in a freezer bag in order to freeze it completely. Once the cake is baked, store the cake at room temperature. It will help in making your cake smell and look fresh. Those who are into gluten free cake, can add four cup of gluten free flour in place of the actual cake flour. For those who prefer dairy free cake, can use almond milk in place of the dairy milk. Using buttermilk in place of milk will also deliver great results.
You must preheat the oven to 350degrees before baking the cake. Vanilla can always make your chocolate cake better. After you mix chocolate and butter, allow it to sit and then after it is melted and slightly cooled, add vanilla into it. Now beat the eggs into the chocolate mixture till it’s absolutely combines. Now divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and bake for 25 minutes. Allow it to cool completely after.
Place the cake on the serving platter and use the metal spatula and add frosting evenly on the cake. You can use little cream for the toppings as per your requirements. There you go, your creamy chocolate cake is all set to be served.
