Basic Chocolate cake

I had my highschool buds over the other day and months of not seeing each other. After lunch and all that, they came to my place to bake!

We wanted something simple, easy and tasty, so we decided on making just a simple chocolate cake.

I couldnt really find a recipe that satisfies all the ingredients that i have at home, so i decided to wing it by modifying the recipe from a simple vanille butter pound cake.


250g butter (2 sticks)
220g sugar
240g flour
4 eggs
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of milk (sour cream ,yogurt or buttermilk will make it moist) – about 200ml-250ml
a pinch of salt

First, beat the butter and sugar into the mixer, add eggs one by one and also vanilla.
Then add all your dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix in the dry ingredients into the butter mixture and alternate with milk.
Place in baking mould after its all combined.

Bake for 35 minutes at 170c or when you poke a toothpick in and it comes out clean.

this cake honestly tastes a little bit like twiggies, it doesnt take too long to make and it came out great 😀

we piped on some cream cheese icing and some chocolate ganache in the middle and it became this sinful monster>>>






Ola here we are with our ”creation” haha
